I just have to share this also. (Boy, I'm in the sharing mood today)
With my new position at work, I am required to work 1-2 evenings a week. Usually I work one until 9 or 10 and then I get one somewhat earlier evening. Well, usually my late night is Mondays. Not too bad really. Rob usually brings the boys up to see me, and I do see them in the am before school. I also have the morning to catch up on things that get away from us, like laundry and just general housework.
Tonight, Jordan calls me at work. Here is our conversation.
Jordan: "Mom, what time do you get off work?"
Me: "9 o'clock"
Jordan: "AW MAN!"
Me: "Why, what do you need?"
Me: "What, do you miss me?" (I say this half kidding, thinking yeah right! He is a tweenage boy, what am I thinking)
Jordan: "Yes, I really was hoping you'd be home tonight."
Now, let me tell you that just made my day. See, Jordan is the oldest, and sometimes I feel like he is so distant. He is a boy, and he is going through that "break away from Mom" stage, and it just melted my heart to know that he DID miss his Mom. Also, I sometimes feel like I'm so hard on him, and I don't want him to dislike his mean ol' Mom. And guess what? He loves me. What a great kid.
Just thought I'd share my sweet boy story of the day.
