I Have Many Leather Bound Books…

Posted on | July 27, 2011 | 19 Comments

I am a lawyer. I am a professional. 

I work in a professional office, doing professional, scholarly, and oh-so-important things.  I wear suits and high heels.  I am called “Mrs. Momma” no one calls me “Law.”  I write briefs and answer phone calls and fight with other lawyers over really important things.  I research the law and I even argue, on occasion, in front of the court of appeals.  I speak quickly and I work hard. People, I think, respect me at least a bit.

Yes, I have pictures of my son on my desk and yes, sometimes he comes to work with me.  But I am a professional who takes her job very seriously.  I need you to understand that.

This morning, my son turned his blue eyes up and smiled at me.  In his sweet little voice, he asked me to please take Mickey Mouse and Panda to work with me.  And I promised I would.  And people? I take promises to children VERY seriously. 

So this is me.  Being important. At work.  In my suit.

With my stuffed animals.

Being a mom is awesome.

    Cuteness! I don’t bring him often (long drive) but my son LOVES seeing his artwork @ my desk. And I keep something he made in Kindergarten front and center: It’s a picture of a building w/the caption “What does mommy do when I am away at school?”. Ans: She goes to work.

    Not to minimize either of our (beloved important) jobs, but it’s a nice reminder that the ONLY thing he knows is that we’re away. Keeps the priorities straight, no? He’s going to love that picture of you & his animals!

    Bad pronoun usage! “…the ONLY thing he knows is that *I’m* away.” Whoops! Where’s my coffee?

    I hope Panda and Mickey get into all sorts of photo-documented shenanigans while they are at work today! Anybody want a photocopy of Mickey’s butt? 🙂

    OMG. I love this.

    I left a screaming toddler this morning who wanted to come to work with me. Now I wish I had brought her, at least for a little bit.

    I have been “supervised” by many a Rescue Hero or panda bear during my work day. They then report back to G how Mommy did at work.

    Love this post and how true it is!!
