An appropriate Monday Story…

Lately (like for the last week or so, every other day) Birdy has been commanding me not to go to work. She sweetly grabs my hand and say “No go to work”. 

I started out by telling her “But honey, Mommy has to go…” but that quickly turns into a “no”, “yes”, “no” discussion that ends in tears when I have to leave anyway. 

So I started to try a new tactic. I say “Why don’t you want me to go to work?”.  She’ll reply with something like “Because I luff you” or “Stay and play with my kids” (meaning MY kids, not hers…). 

It breaks my little heart.

    That is so cute!! Remind me to e-mail you pictures of the girls at the piano. It is only their backs, but I still think they are cute.

    As heartbreaking as it is, isn’t it better than her not caring if you left? Just trying to find the silver lining here…it’s still a cute story.

    I think that is a heart wrenching tale that made my Monday sucktastic
