Just You and Me, Kid.

Monday, there was no preschool because it was a snow day.

Tuesday, preschool got out hours early because it was an “early release day” throughout the school district.

Wednesday, preschool hours were normal, but it’s only a half day.

My son and I have seen a lot of each other this week.  I love spending time with him.  I do.  It’s magical.  I love that some of his earliest memories will be of playing with me in our living room.  I’m extremely lucky that I can work from home so I have this time with him, which is so rare nowadays.  I’m blessed that he’s such a pleasant little boy, and so easy to be around.

But man oh man, am I ready to have some time to myself again today.  And I think he’s going to be happy to be off to preschool for the first full day this week.  Like I said, we’ve seen a lot of each other this week, and as much as we love each other, I think we’re both ready for a break from each other.

On top of that, I’ll finally be able to get back to work!  Snow days and early release days mean I’ve got my hands tied with parenthood, and my workload suffers as a result.  I’m going to have to play catch-up today and tomorrow, and hope there aren’t any more snow days on the horizon.

It’s been just me and him for most of this week.  Most of that time has been pleasant and precious, but I think we’re starting to realize there may be such a thing as “too much time together.”
