Being Home for Emma

This week had brought with it a feeling of contentment that I didn't know I was missing. Getting up with Emma, making her breakfast, sitting and watching Imagination Movers. Getting teeth brushed, child dressed, lunch made, then running out to the bus stop. Having moments to myself to clean the house, do the laundry, plan for dinner, sew. Meeting Emma at the bus stop, hearing about her day, she is so excited, calling kindergarten "magical".

How is it that we have evolved into a society where parents send their children off to daycare to be raised by someone else? Someone else gets to hear about magical school days, watch them play and grow, discover and grow with them. All while parent's are at work, meeting the needs of co-workers and strangers. It's an odd paradigm. Don't you think?
