Sometimes, even two years in, I wonder if I/we have made the right choice in my telecommuting/WAHM world. I wonder about what I've given up in money, careers, jobs, knowledge and time with adults. Days like today, however, when I can kiss my sweet boy's cheek, snuggle him close, and tousle that darkening hair as I tuck him in bed under starry sheets and a blanket strewn with the solar system and walk a few steps down the hall to work, I know I would not give this moment up for anything. I have a dream job and an amazing set up. It has its difficult moments, of course, but it is so worth it for this moment. The one where I can tuck him in at naptime, know he is nearby and still get to do a job that I enjoy and that consistently challenges me. This moment, is priceless and I will treasure it always.
