Dean’s ABA Week

This is another long ABA week, but I see that the next ABA week will be a shorter post. On Tuesday of that week, he had a day off, because everyone was going through training, kinda like a development day for teachers. This week I have been able to work from home and it is glorious, I tell you. I love waking up early and getting some homework done. Then, I hope onto my work server and start my day. I’m able to change a diaper here and put a dish away there. I might be folding some laundry, while I’m waiting on the last few minutes before punching out for lunch. It’s great. I don’t have to pack a lunch or change out of my pajamas. I will be in for a shock when I can’t work from home as much or at all depending upon my future job. But I look forward to those surprise Dean run ins where he runs into my room and wants to say hi. It’s great to see your kid “at work” and being able to spend some time with him, even if it is just him playing with a puzzle at my feet while I’m working. I just love it.
