I am sitting at the computer eating snickerdoodles and washing them down with a big glass of milk. One of my best gal pals told me about these delicious cookies, and since we have the same 'style' in food, I knew they'd be yum!! And yes, if you are wondering, they are really, REALLY, good! Thanks D!
I decided to take my little baby bear with me to Fresh n Easy to get these cookies. I did this after picking her up from pre-school. She is an "all-dayer" now. Which is another way of saying, Mommy does not get to be a stay at home mommy like she was dreaming of. Mommy does not get to do arts and crafts with you at the kitchen table, while she brews another pot of coffee. Mommy does not get to snuggle with you on the couch for a mommy daughter afternoon nap. Mommy does not get to look you in your big beautiful, hazel eyes and so "no, Nan's, actually you don't have to go to school all day today. You get to stay home with Mommy. We are going to go do some errands, then you can color me a picture, then we will water the yard and feed the fish. After that, you can help me get stuff ready for dinner. Then we will make some snacks for when your older sisters get home from school. And daddy will come home from work, and say "what did my favorite girls do today? You are so lucky to have a mommy that is home with you."  [insert cheesy,happy Daddy grin, followed by jolly Leave it to Beaver laugh]
Nope I am dropping my daughter off right now for full day pre-school and every morning she is sad. Last year when she only went 3 hours for 3 days, it was truly like Disneyland to her.We signed her up more for some social time, while mommy worked a few hours a day. She would wake up with the hugest smile on her face, so excited to go. Now she looks at me and says "mommy, I want you" as she is hanging onto my blouse.
WOW!! Hope its worth it!!! Really hope its worth it!!

I didn't feel like being funny today. I usually try to be humorous about everything, well atleast I usually figure out how to turn even the suckiest (yes, Suckiest is in my personal dictionary stored in my brain) anyway, I can turn a sucky situation into a funny one when I put it on paper. But today, I just wasn't feelin it. Not after I pulled into that pre-school, walked to the playground and just spied on my baby bear for a few minutes. She is the sweetest, most awesome child in the world. And when she looked up, saw that I was standing there,she ran to me like you would not believe. She literally jumped in my arms, whispering "mommy, you're here. I wanted you today mommy" 

Yup, I'm not feeling funny today. But maybe a week from now I will. Maybe a week from now, the story of her jumping into my arms will take on a life of its own. And in that new story, I will have fallen backwards into the sandbox, where I dislocated my hip, and had to be carted away by an ambulance. All the while, children were running, screaming and crying from the crazy lunatic mommy who could not stop whaling "Holy Sh*T, Mother F*CKER! Dear God, Help ME! I THINK MY HIP IS BROKEN!!" Yeah, that would be pretty funny at my little ones Catholic Pre-School!
One Day Baby Bear!! One day mommy will not have to work. One day I will be a stay at home mommy!A Stay at home mommy on disability, in a half body cast. But by golly, I'll be home
Love you Baby Bear!
