I think this could be a recurring theme.
I forgot my lunch so the crew came up to drop off my lunch. I wasn't able to eat with them because it is a 2 hour late start day and Lauren wouldn't make it to the bus in time.
Ellie hugged me and said "(with a tear of course) I love you, mommy. Please don't go back. Come home with me." She perked up when I told her she could go grocery shopping and buy brownie mix with daddy.
She then handed me her headband and said "here, mommy, take this so you remember me. Put in your purse".
It's days like this that I wish I was independently wealthy.
