You have to have faith that she will be OK for the hours she is not with you. This was not easy for me to do, I felt like I never saw her! Getting home late afternoon and some after school activities, homework, dinner and showers and before I knew it days were flying by and my time with her was minimal.

She's growing up :( I know it's only kindergarten and some of you may still be laughing at me but this was a huge eye opener for me. I have enjoyed all the time I have had home with her but still wasn'…
