And by Ferris Bueller, I mean my daughter.
M is home “sick” today. And by “sick,” I mean she is having a mental health day.
She does this periodically.
In fact, it occurred to me this morning that she does it when I’m grading papers.
Like every time.
I think she figured she needed a little more mommy time, so she decided today was it, her mental health day.
So, she’s in my bed, watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and I am grading papers next to her. Periodically, she pats my arm or hugs me.
I love it. I’m relishing it. Because one day, she’ll be too busy for me or she’ll have a date or she’ll be going out with friends and she won’t want to hang out with me.
I can’t even think about that.
For now, I’m enjoying our mental health day, even if I do have to grade papers while we snuggle.
Have a great weekend, y’all. Snuggle with someone you love, too.
