I can be domestic when I want to be.
Today I took Muffin to his 1st day of Jr. Kindergarten he was gone from 9:30 - 2:30. He has been so excited about going but in the car on the way there he said, " I don't want to go to Jr. Kindergarten." When we got to the classroom door he looked so sad but he didn't cry and I hugged him hard and kissed his cheek and sent him off into the world. It's always hard to walk away from your child when you know they are scared or nervous. It's one of those pushing them out of the nest and hoping they fly moments.
During my time alone (since Puck is in 1st grade all day) I cleaned the house, put dinner in the crock pot, washed my bedroom drapes and duvet. Oh, and I was able to catch Hoda and Kathy Lee, a rare event for me. I liked it:) I liked being able to take care of the home that we live in and prepare food to put on the table. I wish I could be here everyday. I wish I didn't have to leave my boys to go to work, but I do and that is my reality. Traffic, office politics, early mornings, long commutes...a tired mommy at the end of the day. I hope I am giving my kids the best I can.
