It's sad and Dr Laura would probably not approve but my kids know the terminology of my profession. They're 6 and 4. When I tell them we have to work after school, they'll ask, "Is it just a consultation or are we staging?" Indeed, "Do we have to work today?" is an often heard question when I pick my kids up from school.
Such is the life of a working mom but not wanting her kids in daycare any more than necessary working mom. So actually, I'm not sure about Dr. Laura's opinion here. They're not in daycare. I have to work. I make my own hours and run my own business. I'm teaching them about hard work, determination, business ownership and responsibility. They are learning. We are together.
But I do feel the quilt. I see that they're tired some days when I really have to get a job done. I write about this today because my husband returns to his school administrative job today and I have the kids until school starts in August. They'll have some days that they can lay around by the pool but we'll also have some days where we have to go to work. It's going to be a long month.
