My kids are adjusting to having me work outside of the home.  I have always worked while they were at school or other activities.  The kind of job I had allowed me to have that flexibility.  My little one is struggling the most with not having me home.  She has a sweet, sensitive soul.

Last night when I got home from work, she had left me a little surprise on my bedside table.  She picked these from our back garden, which is beginning to show signs of spring.  And she found the little shot glass in the armoire that houses our barware and extra serving pieces.  I could just see her, climbing up on a chair to reach the tiny little 'vase'.

The little note is her version of the "A Midsummer Night's Dream" poster that I have just created for her school's production of the play.  You can't read it in this photo but she's labelled the characters: Hermia, Lysander, Oberon, etc.  There's a special note just for me on the back.

Love my girl so much.

  3. So touching. It must be quite a challenge to shift your balancing act and take that leap. What a sweet reward.

    Best of luck and have a great weekend.
