day of mom, observed (by school)

today i planned to work from home a half day. in the afternoon, i was supposed to meet paul at school for a kindergarten performance and mother's day tea.

but this morning i was awakened by a very sad boy. "mommy, i am sorry you can't come. i am sick."

so paul is taking a sick day with me while i work. (my mom took nola away because she wanted to play). we've eaten oatmeal, answered brain-quest questions and watched "here come the abc's." i've promised cupcakes later. he's promised to do catch-up schoolwork later. he's doing a puzzle right now. "mommy, when you're done working, would you please help me?"

working from home is so exhausting when it also involves mommying.
