My primary job is to be his mother. And I love it. More than I could have even imagined.
But I have accepted other responsibilities, and sometimes, I have to be gone. And sometimes, I need a little girl time with some of my good friends to recharge and connect.
But every single time, as I pull out of the driveway, I look up to see this. That sweet face smiling and waving bye as daddy holds him. And the annoying yet lovable dog next to them doesn’t hurt either.
And I want to run back inside, forget my responsibilities or need for down time and just snuggle them close.
Because when it comes down to it, I love my job. I love being a mother and wife and providing the best life I can for the two of them. So even if I want to get away, it’s never for very long, because I love just being with them.
Every once in a while, I have to go somewhere by myself.
But as I pull out of the driveway, and see his sweet face in the window,
all I want to do is run back inside, lock the doors, and stay home with them for the day.
