Planning for maternity leave in the classroom can feel like a daunting task when we already have so much on our plate as teachers! I had a hard time wrapping my head around planning 2 weeks worth of lesson plans when I was already struggling to keep up daily myself.
Pregnancy made me SUPER tired and many times I found myself passed out on the couch before dinner. Not to mention all I had on my brain was BABY! I was reading baby books, decorating the nursery, trying to plan healthy meals, and researching everything. The last thing I wanted to do or think about was maternity plans!

"You might have noticed that everyone loves kittens... and puppies... and bunnies. You know, cute fluffy things. But nobody loves a slightly hairy, I suppose a bit googly eyed monster." - Love Monster by Rachel Bright
