I’m sorry for this post

I have spent the better part of this snow day thinking. Mainly because Mia has reached the age where I am no longer welcome to sit by her side at all hours, waiting on her every move.

They also feel that it allows the children to work on social skills more adeptly without Mom standing over them telling them how to behave and who to say hello to. I could have described to you the sight of many huddled parents peeking through the shades used to cover the two windows that look off into the parent waiting area and how I was happy to see that I wasn’t the only parent who positioned myself outside the window ready to pounce if and when I was needed.
