I love how you make sure that you "schedule your priorities" as opposed to "prioritizing your schedule." Having kids definitely helped me put things in perspective and realize what is truly important and worth my valuable time. I also keep in mind that I can never get back these years of watching my boys grow up. I already feel like my 2 year old is growing up way too fast, and I don't want to miss any more time with him than I have to. Reevaluating my priorities has been such an important task for me!
Thanks for posting your comments. I hope you are adjusting well to being back at work after your maternity leave. I am already anxious about leaving my little guys to return to my classroom at the end of May. Luckily the summer break comes soon after my return!
