My children sit waiting for me
So they can tell me all about their day
One with so much excitement for what she’s about say
One just happy to be home away from everything and everyone
And one so tired that all that is happening around her means nothing,
I’ve found comfort in hearing their words as I walk through the door…
“Mommy how was your day?“
What should I say?
Do I tell them the day was too long?
But not long enough for all I wished I could have done with them?
Do I tell them great,
because I knew I was coming home to all of them?
Should I just say
I’m just happy to be alive and share this time with you?
These are all the things I could say
to my little ones that I leave at home every day
Whom I couldn’t live without
Each time I walk out the door without them
My heart aches just a bit more
They are my children
They make me whole
I love you my trio x’s two
How was your day?
And they say together
“We love you mommy, are you home to stay?
Mommy, How Was Your Day?©
