If there is one thing I have learned since being a Mother it is that taking a sick day is not because I am sick. And it isn’t because I just want to play hooky from working. It is because I need to take care of my child when one of them isn’t feeling well. I am not writing this to complain. I am writing this blog post today to remind myself to cherish the special days and these special years when my children need only me. It is an unforgettable feeling to hold my precious babe (he is 6 months now, see photos below!) in my arms, comforting him just the way he needs and knowing that I am the only one he wants. (Ssshhh! Don’t tell my husband! 🙂 ) There are not many reasons I take a day off of work that don’t involve my family. Whether it is for a vacation, to take care of a sick child or husband, or even go on a field trip. Taking time for family is the MOST important part of my life. I am thankful for my family and my work. I cherish every day I have with their precious souls.
