I’m linking up today over at The Gypsy Mama for 5 Minute Friday!
Today’s theme: Good Bye
Snuggled in layers of fuzzy pink and white, off to daycare with a fever we pray doesn’t return, a cough, and a smile. Mornings are hard for me. I love the snuggles, the sweet smiles, the excitement about breakfast. I hate the exhaustion, no coffee, and knowing that I miss out on some of Madison’s best parts of her day.
And as much as I love the women who care for Madi Monday – Friday, part of my heart hates to say good-bye. My head knows that she is loved, snuggled, fed, and played with. They teach her new skills, celebrate achievements and are sad with us when she’s sick. But my heart longs to stay just a few minutes longer, to sit on the floor and watch her play with the other girls, letting them play with the tags on my Toms and explore their surroundings. To observe my daughter in her day-to-day environment.
She smiles when she sees the other girls and her teachers. My heart could ask for nothing more. Except a day to stay and play, and not have to say good bye.
