We're working a flex schedule this summer to spend more time with our son. So on Mondays, I take the morning off and take him out to play. I have to say that every Monday should start with a trip to the Natural History Museum or to the pool or to a hiking trail to collect treasures.
After lunch, I work for 2 hours and he has some downtime in the houese and its easy to slip into work while little arms slip around my neck and whisper "thanks for the nice day mom. we're so lucky, huh."
