After thirteen years of teaching English (and because my husband is still working), I’m home with my first baby. [Update: Now I’m home with our two children, six-year-old Girl and three-year-old Boy. And still, what follows is true – but Girl is in first grade, and Boy is home with me.] It’s wonderful. She’s wonderful. I read, I read to her, and books fill our home. Teaching is still important to me, and I cook regularly and clean…sometimes. I’m on hiatus, and we’ll see how long that lasts.
