I was so happy to read this post. I just started back to work two weeks ago after my maternity leave. Leaving my son is the hardest thing I've ever done, but like you my passion for teaching is to great to leave.
I have found that by scheduling my priorities instead of prioritizing my schedule has helped to maximize the time I spend on important things, like lesson planning and playing with my son. I keep these times sacred ad schedule other less meaningful things around them.
