Yesterday at Eli's school, the kindergarten classes had a Mom and Muffin morning to celebrate the letter "M".
These days are the reason I quit my career to stay home with my children. These days are the reason I don't go back to work even though they are all in school.
My neighbor watched Brynne for me so I could go and devote my time solely to Eli. If you are a mom with multiple children, then you know how important it is to single out just one of your children with your time and attention whenever you can. It's not possible very often, but when it is we have to do it!
Of course he was so excited for me to be there!
We just sat and snuggled and ate our muffin.
There were about five children who didn't have a mom or other significant woman there to eat with them. The boys just joined other kids and their moms and seemed fine because, hey, they were getting to eat a muffin and have chocolate milk!
But, there was one little girl .. that one who was heartbroken that her mommy wasn't there. She was just crying and crying and it broke my heart.
This is the reason I quit my career to stay home with my children. This is the reason I don't go back to work even though they all are in school.
