When the school announced that today was ‘Take your kid to work’ day, both girls were insistent that we participate. Mostly for a free day off from school, but I like to think it is because they like us too.
They spent the morning with Jeff, digging stumps and fixing things around Urban. In the afternoon, they came with me to get 25 blueberry bushes that were donated to the community garden I putter around in.
By 2pm they were knocked out in the back of the truck. When I commented that it is hard to go to work and then to come home and take care of them, they both plopped down beside me and cuddled up.
And then they said the sweetest sentence a mother could ever hear…’Now we get it Mom…’
