Show Me the Money

As a working mom with a stay at home husband, Seren often asks me why do I need to go to work? And what do I do there? She continues to 'cancel' work for me during these snowy days. She draws a picture of me at my desk and then writes a huge X through it. "See! Work is cancelled!" Do you think if I show this to the VP he'd understand?

When the questions about why I have to go to work come, I sometimes explain to her that I'm working so we can have money. And we need money for things like our cars, groceries, our home, etc. And that Daddy works too, he just works from home.

Last week she asked me, "Ok, so you go to work to get money. But how come you never come home with any?"

I had to laugh.

I think she thinks I should walk in the door at 5:15 with a wad of Benjamins in my purse.

LOL. Wouldn't that be nice, though?
