But there's something that makes work a little brighter during these times. It's when people bring their kids in to work.
It's wonderful to see these kids grow up right before my eyes.
My coworker B - his kids didn't come to work, but they wrote a little something for me and the Cowgirl Cre.
Little Bryant, bless his heart. He's just learning to write. Not sure what's all going on with the note (the drawing... I think that's Cowgirl Cre standing next to a tree, and a butterfly is about to land in her weave... Or maybe that tree is me? No, I don't have that much hair), but I know that he and his little brother wanted us to have a good day. I've been looking at the note for the past month, and it reminds me to have a good day ON PURPOSE.
One of my favorite little people, Miss Chase stopped through.
I'm the tooth fairy's distant cousin, so I gave her 8 dollars.
I whispered in her ear "Don't tell your Mama. She might try to take this money from you."
(Not a good look to whisper that loudly when her Mama Ol' Mean Azz Cynthia is standing right there. Not a good look at all.)
She spent the afternoon with us. She wrote me a lovely note before she left for the day!
And this little fella here...
I've never met him. I just remember when his Mama was big and pregnant with him.
He did not want to smile for me. But you can tell he takes a lot of pictures. Each time I snapped a photo, he immediately was reaching for the camera, wanting to see himself.
I finally got a smile out of him!
