There’s not much I like about spending 40 hours a week away from my children. I work full-time and let me tell ya – when 4:00 rolls around I start getting antsy! By that time I am SO ready to see my kiddos.
Although it sucks to say goodbye in the mornings there is something about working that makes the reunion that much sweeter. Let me tell you what happens when Landon sees me for the first time at daycare. As soon as he spots me come around the door he jumps up, screams mama and lunges into my arms. Brigham’s enthusiam couldn’t be cuter. He shrieks at the top of his lungs, drops whatever he has in his hands and immediately comes running.
It feels so good. So very good to be appreciated like that after a long day. When we get home we snuggle closer, hug tighter and laugh harder. And yes, we dance to the Fresh Beat Band. The funny thing is I’m not sure those 5:00 memories would be made if I weren’t gone all day. It makes me appreciate them that much more.
Sweet post-work snuggles and smiles.
