I know most ladies would think it strange when I say I had a great Mother's Day - at work. Since weekends are my regular gig, I've grown accustomed to being there on special days such as Easter, Father's Day, Mother's Day, and any holiday that I am assigned if it falls on Saturday or Sunday. Comes with the job. Mostly I am OK with that - after all, it was what I accepted when I took the position, and the benefit is that my kids see me every day before and after school, sometimes during the day for field trips and lunch in the cafeteria, and are virtually free of daycare during the summer. I think it sets a good example for my kids, too, that mom and dad have it arranged so that the kids were always with a parent, not a baby-sitter. It shows commitment and teamwork to raising our kids, not to mention that I make a valuable contribution to the family's finances. It probably wouldn't work for everybody, but for our family, is ideal.
And I think my peeps are better for it.
I hope all of you had a great Mother's Day, too, and feel loved and appreciated - every day. Especially the other mothers I am please to work with on the weekends!
