“The hardest part of going to work is being apart from you.”
I remember once upon a time when I went back to work and left my then 2-1/2 year old at a daycare. She was my only child at the time and I can remember feeling an emptiness in my heart as I drove away without her. It wasn’t long until I found myself working from home, so I could be the one teaching and nurturing her. However, my husband has been working outside of the home since before our two daughters were born. Each evening when we hear the garage door open, the girls exclaim, “Daddy’s home! Daddy’s home!” and then they run in circles near the top of the stairs, waiting for him to appear around the corner. After being without them all day, I’m know that makes his heart swell with happiness.
Monday Is One Day is a sweet and simple book that keeps in mind those of us who are away from our little humans for any length of time. The book focuses on the idea of doing something special each day to help each other pass the time that is spent apart. Families of all shapes and sizes can relate to this story.
