My dear friend K, it is not that I didn't respect you as a work-from-home mother before, but now I am amazed by you. Any time you need a break, give me a call! And to all you other working moms (inside the home or outside) give yourself a big ol' pat on the back. You are all AMAZING!!! Now, back to work.

Working from Home...
I would love to say that this could actually be an option. Be with K all day long, still have daily contact with adults and still bring home at least some "bacon". Truth is, I do not see how people do it! It has to be the hardest thing ever. I have a friend, K, who is doing just this. She is working from home while taking care of two beautiful daughters, A and K. I can tell some days she is at her wit's end, and I now know why. Today I decided to stay home this afternoon with K. Not take the day off, mind you, but work from home for an afternoon. If a picture is worth a thousand words, well here you go. (I had decided to bring home some filing that I was getting behind on and here is what happened.)
