Picking up a baby from day care
When your baby is the arms of another person and she starts crying...reaching for you...saying "Mama, mama!"
What do you do?
How do you walk away from that without a broken heart?
How do you not let that, at 7:15 in the morning, ruin your whole work day?
Don't get me wrong; I love my job. I'm proud of the work I do, I like my coworkers, and my supervisor is great. And how awesome is it that Paige will grow up knowing that, for the first year and a half of her life, Mommy supported the family financially? Talk about empowering.
But none of that seems to matter when you see the tear-stained face, the sad eyes, and the little hands stretched out to you.
So I'm asking, honestly, Mommies and Daddies, how do you make it through those days?
