I collected the kids from school today for the first time since I started working full day in April.
These days when I get home they are usually already in the process of being bathed or running around or comatose on the couch – weather dependent. So I don’t get that sheer happiness you get when you collect them. Those few minutes when they are genuinely happy to see you and excited to tell you all about their day and you have some time to catch up with their teacher.
I miss those days, probably for selfish reasons more than anything else. But still. I love them extra tonight.
