Usually Kobe is happy enough to wave and say goodbye to Aaron in the morning as he leaves for work. This morning was another story. When he realised he was leaving he burst into tears and started chasing him out the door screaming 'Dad, Dad, Dad, Daddy!!', and kept reaching up to have a cuddle with him.
I always think how lucky I am to be able to be a stay at home Mum, while the boys are little. It's a choice I've made and it has been an easy choice to make as I love it, and although I would've loved to have bought a house years ago, or travelled the world or have a much nicer car to drive, none of that is worth not being with my boys while they are growing up.
I don't think I could stand leaving to this every morning anyway (mind you he was fine 30 seconds after he left!).
