Oh how I long for the day that I could be a stay at home mother. Not having to work two full time jobs. (Work and home.)
The last two days I was home with a bum foot. Even with the pain I loved being home. Big Al got sick at school and I was able to rush to his school to come to his rescue He was so happy to see me in his time of need.
Little Al was so super happy to see me when she got off the school bus. She greeted me with kisses. Giving the kids snacks after school was a little thing but it was a big deal. When I get home from work on normal days Little Al is hunger crazed. She wanted to eat everything in sight. It's almost like she waits for me to get home to go nuts.
I like the feeling of not being rushed to get these done. Jumping from one thing to the next. I can only imagine how it feels not to worry about using all of my sick days for IEP meetings, doctor appointments and other things. Having the freedom to walk around my neighborhood....just because I felt like it.
Those who have the chance to stay home are very lucky. If I could run away from the financial responsibly I hold.... I would. Maybe I can become one of those coupon crazy moms you see on TV. They have the right idea of staying home. (Nah....that's not for me.) Maybe I could hit the lotto and say good bye to my job.
An Awesome Mom could only dream.
