Tonight I was laying with the boys in their room before bed and right after we got all snuggled down and it was all quiet this conversation took place.

Jack: Hey Mom?
Me: Yeah?
Jack: Do you have to go to work tomorrow?
Me: Yeah, bud.
Jack: Then after tomorrow do you need to go to work the tomorrow after that?
Me: Uh-huh.
Jack: How many tomorrows after that do you need to go?
Me: Five tomorrows and then it's the weekend again.
Jack: I hate tomorrows.
Me: I know bud. Me too.

It got quiet again for a minute and then...

Jack: Mom, I love vacation because on vacation you stay with us for a long time without going to work.
Me: Heartbroken silence, lump in my throat and tears running down my face. I hate tomorrows too.

*For those of you who came here thinking my "Heartbroken" post was about the Bears, sorry to disappoint. It was a sad day to be a Bears fan, which I proudly am. Congrats to the Packers. I wish I could say I wish you all the best in the Super Bowl but you and I know I really want to see you lose. Until next year my friends....
