My son has been asking for two hours for me to lay down with him and my response was, "I can't, mommy's working. Just a minute baby." He finally gave up on me as he was tucked into his blanket when I got to a stopping point... sleeping sweetly, I kissed his forehead.
This mom feels like an asshole. May this be a reminder that time with my babies, my loves, my hearts, is precious. Work can wait. Snuggles are better for the soul.
