“Why is it drug addicts and computer aficionados are both called users?” – Clifford Stoll
Why the hell am I even posting on Christmas Eve? I have a disease. No post tomorrow, I promise. Maybe.
All week in my house so far:
“Mommy, is today a school day?” Hopeful eyes looking up into mine.
“No, sweetie.” Huge grin.
“Mommy, do you have to be a doctor today?
“No, baby doll. Let’s bake some cookies!”
Cue smile a mile wide.
From both of us.
These questions get asked several times a day as reassurance. They are not used to mommy having some time off. They are not used to having time off themselves.
Sometimes I forget that my kids work just as hard as I do.
It has been divine to be able to putz around the house in my jammies for days, shunning my standard uniform of high heels and make-up. If that doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit, I don’t know what does!
Happy Holidays, one and all!
