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.
