Igor holds many things close to the vest. Some days he freely gives information but most days getting him to talk is like prying open a clam with your fingernails. I've noticed that being in the car allows for a little more information to be shared.
Today Igor and I were driving to his eye appointment and some how we started talking about work. I asked him how he would feel if I went back to work. All he said was -NO.
me- why not? You are in school all day.
Igor- I like for you to be at home.
me- I use to work.
Igor- Remember when I was 3 and 4 years old and you went to work?
Igor- I didn't like it.
me- But daddy stayed home with you.
Igor- I know. But I wanted to be with you all the time.
Igor is 8 years old, this is the first time he has ever expressed his desire for me to stay home with him. I guess I should never under estimate my work as a stay at home mom. I think we should ride in the car more often.
