I love my job. I love watching kids grow themselves as readers and writers, but I know I am missing out on watching my own kids grow. Today as Emma and I came home with fries in hand from Mickey D's we heard Gracie playing in the backyard. I told Emma to go on outside and I put the "pile-o-stuff" from the day away. Within in seconds I hear a small voice excitedly saying, "My mommy's here!! She's really here!! I love her and miss her!!"
My heart literally skipped a beat as I turned and eneveloped my Gracie goose girl. She grabbed with all of her mighty might and kissed my face, "I love you Mommy! Miss you!" She squeezed me and then told me to go play outside.
I miss her too when I'm gone. I hope my girls will understand when they are older that sometimes Mommy's work, but we make the most of it when I'm home!!!
