I forgot one of the most important reasons I couldn't work outside the home. It only happens when the stars align, the fates smile down, the blue moon appears, and magic sprinkles the house... i.e. very infrequently. But it happened yesterday...
All three kids slept at the same time!! And I got to crawl in to bed with my middle baby snuggled up in my arms, and drift off to a beautiful nap. And I got to be awakened by a little baby crying for her mommy, who then got to hold her while we watched a little redhead dream on the sofa, curled up under an afghan.
And I don't think they'd let me do that in the library.
I am lucky.
