So yesterday was my class’ Nativity performance. I love preparing for it, and I am always the proudest teacher when they perform it.
Last year’s was amazing too. In fact, my headteacher commented to the parents he had no idea how I would top it for this year. At the time, I hoped I would be on maternity leave for Christmas 2016 so I wouldn’t have to consider what I would do for the next one.
Well, here I am one year later, NOT on maternity leave and another Nativity completed.
It was another milestone passed. In one week’s time it is officially 1 year since we started trying to conceive.
I’m not setting myself another target for next year. It’s not worth the heartache if that one also passes by with no baby.
But it would be the icing on the cake if I could attend my own class’ Nativity next year, not as the producer/director, but as their proud spectating teacher, with my baby in my arms.
