If you have ever been to our college, you might have noticed the various marketing pieces hanging all over campus with sayings like "i teach", "i inspire", "i direct" etc. There is always a corresponding picture to illustrate the message. They are wonderful posters and I always thought they were so creative. Well...our fabulous marketing department put together a very special piece for me. They titled it "i mommy" and it is attached to a picture of Addison and I. The caption reads "Scheduling classes, hiring teachers, writing course descriptions and organizing catalogs--just a few of the many jobs Jennifer completed with a smile on her face and pride in her spirit. But those tasks pale in comparison to the job of "mommy". While her colleagues will miss her dearly, we understand she's moving on to a bigger and better role in the life of a beautiful little girl. Ask Jennifer about her new job and she'll say "i mommy".
You are totally crying right now aren't you? Well, as you can imagine, I lost it too. Big time. With everyone watching me. But that's okay because I am pretty sure I heard a few other sniffles during the presentation. I just never expected such a warm and sentimental farewell and this is yet another reason why I am going to miss my friends and coworkers so much. But that is the great thing about being a SAHM, I can take Addie up to campus for visits whenever I want. In fact, I can do whatever I want with Addie everyday now because I am no longer the Program Director. I mommy.
