That's my baby!

Would you like to see my baby dance? Now, if he would just dance on down to the head-down position, I would feel much better.

You love me, you really love me!

Well it's obvious my former students miss me. I know they do because they are all emailing me now. Their letters are very similiar. They read something like this:

Dear Mrs. Abigail,
Hi. How are you? How is Denver? I hope you are getting settled in. How is the baby? Well, thanks to you I got a [3,4, or 5] on the AP exam. Thank you for teaching me!

Also, I was wondering, if you aren't too busy, would you be willing to write me a letter of recommendation?

Sincerely [or some other awkward closing],
former student

Really, I don't mind it. I had assured them before I left that I would help with the recommendations. It's a small way for me to stay connected with students and they are great kids so I'm glad to help. The only problem is that I am having terrible pregnancy induced carpal tunnel (turns out it is a real ailment) so typing isn't so much fun right now. But if I work a little at a time I think I should be able to manage it.

Back to what?

So, everyone is back to school now, both here in Colorado and back in Maryland. Except for me, for the first time since I was 5.

It's weird.

And sad.

And great.
