Should I Stay or Should I Go?

The decision to stay home or go back to work is a universal struggle with most moms. There's no right or wrong decision, just what's best for each family unit. But even then, do we really know what's best? and can we really have it all?...perfect just the way we want it? I would venture to guess, that most of the time, the answer is no. For some reason today was particularly difficult for me to leave my little babies and go off to my big girl land. A place free of whining and runny noses, but also free of sticky kisses and childhood innocence.

So right now, I'm sitting in one of my hospitals waiting for a meeting to start and all I want to do is go home and play with my kids. I left so early this morning that I didn't even get to see sweet little Anna's face before I left...and I'm sure as soon as she woke up, she was yelling for me to come get her. Not that daddy isn't the best (or maybe even better) substitute, but when your child calls for you, you want to be there.

On the other hand, i'm sure several times this week I'll be grateful for my time away and for the opportunity I'm given each day to venture outside of Elmo and Tea parties. Thank God for my flexible schedule!! It seems today is just one of those days...
