How Long Will You Work?

The second night of my first week back to work, I was tucking LittleBug in. She put her little hand up to my face and said, "Mommy, it's not that I want you to stop working, but how long are you going to work?" So sweet and expressive. That is LittleBug -- always very careful to make sure she is communicating exactly what she wants to. I started to talk about how I was probably going to be working from now on, but then I stopped myself. I remembered the sage advice to only answer what the child is asking. So I explained that I was working on Monday through Friday, but on Saturday and Sunday I got to be with her! Then we talked about all the fun things we could do together. Skiing and eating lollipops ranked high.


  1. Wow! You responded to her perfectly...good job mom!
