Simeon made my day

The conversation went like this:

R: What if we only had one dinobite and one drop of milk?

Me: Then we would be really hungry.

R: and poor.

Me: And your mother would have to go back to work and you would have to go to day care.

S: NOooOooooO!!!!!!!!!!

(Dinobites are the off brand bag cereal imitation fruity pebbles)

I will admit, that lately, being a stay at home mom has not been as lovely as I thought it was when I first got to be a stay at home mom. I'm not feeling very successful at it. I am mostly lonely. We are in a tight budget...still. I don't have much to say about my day at the end of it, but i'm still exhausted like I saved the universe that day. So, on and so forth.

So, to hear from my three year old that day care would be a fate worse than watching PBS kids, made me feel pretty good for a while. And I will admit that, on that day, he watched a little less PBS kids.

That's exactly right! I don't have much to say about my day, but I feel like I've saved the universe. Glad Simeon appreciates the saving.

Down the road a few years, you will be forever grateful that you are a stay at home mom. It may not seem like it now, but it's rewarding in the end.
