Perceiving Life

My children are now 25 and 23. When they were little, my daughter would comment as we passed day care centers that she wanted to go to day care. I would explain to her how that meant that I would have to take her there early in the morning and picking her up right before bedtime. She still wanted to go, because she saw the children playing.

Now at 23, she thanks me constantly for being at home with her. It was worth every sacrifice we made for me to stay home to now get validation of our decision. Everyone can do it if you really want to. Trust me. I now work at an elementary school and we can easily tell which children go to day care.
