Totally worth it.

This morning I was just getting ready to walk out the door when Liam woke up ready to eat.  Here are my options.... A. Get to work early and be super productive....meaning I would have to at some point lock myself in a standing-room only closet one extra time today while students stood outside wondering aloud what "Wyse-Fisher is doing in the closet...and what is that motor sound?" or option B. Arrive a little later and feed Liam before I left.  For obvious reasons I chose B.     

Six reasons why it was totally worth it....
1.  Liam's face lit up with the biggest smile you've ever seen when I went to get him.
2.  I heard him giggle.
3.  While eating, he kept stopping to look at me and smile like he couldn't believe it was really me.
4.  I got to chase Miles around the dining room one last time.
5.  I heard him giggle.
6.  While I was pulling out of the drive Miles stood on the couch and blew kisses to me.

What happens when I get to school early?
1.  I have to pump in a closet with students right outside the door.
2.  No one blows me kisses.
3.  I'm lucky if I get any smiles out of the 100+ disgruntled students.
4.  I am the only one that giggles - usually at my own lame jokes.
5.  You can forget about anyone's face lighting up at the sight of me.
6.  I work.

This is how I make decisions now, and so far it is 
Miles and Liam - 1 
Grumpy Teenagers - 0
