Had an impromptu chat with the Boss who asked whether I will continue with the part-time arrangement. I have thought about it and, since Boss brought it up, I just might take it on for another year. I sure would like to be around when Little One walks, talks, learns her alphabet. I would like to be around for Big One when schools gets more intense, when teenage woes need a listening ear. I also secretly look forward to some "me" time when Little One is older and takes longer naps, or goes to childcare and I can have a couple of hours in a stretch. Of course that would be several years down the road!
