Don't Go....

Mommy/Mama. That's what I have been hearing for the past few weeks. Every night when I am getting ready to go to work or just the mention of me going to work. Just about every evening when I head upstairs to change for work Jenna follows me. As I get in my work clothes she says "Mommy no go work." Tonight however it was just a little different and quite cute actually. She said "Mama no go work, go tomorrow." It was to cute. I guess maybe the kids are going through a little phase where they just don't want me to leave. It really makes me sad but at the same time it makes me happy. Only because it lets me know that they do actually notice that I am gone in the evenings. They are always having so much fun with Daddy when I am about to walk out the door, I sometimes wonder if they even notice I am gone besides the whole goodbye hug and kiss. Jacob on the other hand is a little more dramatic shall I say. I am pretty sure he's the one that started this phase, if it is a phase and Jenna has decided to follow. Some nights I find him holding onto my legs begging "Don't go!" And in the morning when we wake up he tells me "Momma go to work and me miss her." Today though he read me the cutest letter. We have these little plastic letters from on of our Fisher Price toys. Quite often I am given mail for me to read. When Jacob usually reads me my letter's they say:
To Momma,
I love Momma
However today it was just a little more detailed.
To Momma,
When Momma go to work I miss her. I don't like it when Momma go to work. Me sad when Momma go to work. I love Momma.

He's such my little cutie. He amazes me everyday. Especially with his talking. He loves to tell you stories now. Last year we were lucky if he put three words together. When he's in one of his story telling moods Joe and I just look at each other in amazement at the amount of words that come out of his mouth. Thank goodness for Mrs. Clay, that's his speech therapist, we love her. Jacob really loves her too and my gosh she loves him too. Also a lot of practicing and his homework. He just loves his homework. Hopefully he will continue to love his homework throughout school. Okay, I know off on a tangent again.

It's the things like them telling them that they miss me and don't want me to leave that make me feel like a special Mommy. How do your kids make you feel special?

Aw...That's so sweet Jamie!!! It must break your heart when they plead for you not to go to work :(

It's good that they get alone time with you and Joe though. I don't know about you guys, but Johnny and Jacob act differently when they are with John. Maybe it has a little something to do with the fact that he lets them do just about whatever they want!!! Men!! :)
