I was blessed because my Sweets and I passed in the doorway coming and going with our kids. We found a teen age babysitter who was very responsible so if our days overlapped she would watch the kids until the other parent got home! Our kids were always happy and healthy in their own home. It was the best situation we could afford!
So if you can bake cookies instead of having a career, just do it! I think your kids will appreciate your sacrifice, although they might not show it until later in life.
Recently my Sweets celebrated a birthday! Our middle daughter bought him a book titled "Why A Daughter Needs A Dad" (100 Reasons). It is filled with photos and simple verses about being a father to your daughter. Our middle wrote her own thoughts on sticky notes and placed them under the other quotes. It really made us both feel wonderful that having one of us always available to talk with her in difficult situations was a tremendous blessing. She felt that we were always there for her no matter if she was having a good time or bad! We were glad we could be there for our kids when they were younger and now they can be there for us as we get older!
