Through My Children’s Eyes

30 Oct

We are all home for the summer.

That includes me, the teacher/mom.

After reading all of these posts on Facebook about how many more parents appreciate  the fact that teachers are under paid once they have been home for a few weeks with their own kids!

I see it completely differently. Don’t get me wrong, I  love being a teacher and I always have. I only took the standard 6 weeks off and went back to work after the birth of both of my children. I have always wanted to be a working mom.

BUT…..

This summer it seems to be different….I can’t even begin to tell you how much more time I wish I had with my kids.

No matter how much the two boogers argue (they are only 18 months apart, so it’s like having twins!). No matter how messy the house keeps getting. No matter how quickly we go through a gallon of milk (Two days, really? Is there a milk thief somewhere)

I can’t seem to get enough!

I want to sit in the yard and watch them swim, swing, run around, and just be silly. I want to sit on the couch and watch cartoons with them, I want to play Sims on my computer and have them giggle uncontrollably at how bad I am at computer games. I want to bake cakes, and watch my daughter frost them, I want to play poker with my son and have me tell me how terrible I am at my “poker face”.

I know….I want, I want, I want!

Well, I guess I figured out why yesterday. As we were just sitting around talking about like in general the world is a beautiful place “through my children’s eyes”. I like what I see and I really want to see a lot more of it!
