While watching the inauguration yesterday I was thinking. If I was at work I would have missed this amazing day in history. How sad I would feel not being able to witness such an important moment. Then I thought about all the other things that I would miss if I was not home with my kids every day.
I would miss....
...the early morning cuddles I get from Madelyn every day!
...having silly dance parties anytime the girls and I wanted too!
...baking cookies for the kids just because it's Wednesday!
...playing with play-dough all day long.
...lunch time conversations.
...and a million other moments that I could never get back!
I know if I worked, I would be able to buy that big, new television or take a great vacation to a sandy beach for a few weeks in the summer. But for what I would miss, it is so not worth it!
