As a stay-at-home mother I've had the glorious gift of being able to spend every waking moment with my son. Some days that was a little more rough than others, but it is always a joy. I know everything about him; his favorite foods, his favorite transformer, how he plays in the sink when he should be washing his hands. I know all the little things that make him special. It was this knowledge of all the little things that I loved.
I think the thing I most feared would be that I would no longer "know" my son. I am no longer the biggest influence in his life. He now has teachers and friends that he spends the bulk of his day with. I understand that myself and my husband are still his core support team, however that logical talk has yet to reach my heart.
