Say what you will about working versus staying at home, issues of identity and issues of child development, women's rights, FMLA...
...it's pretty awesome when your kid says things like "Did you always want to be a mother and a teacher?" and tells his preschool science teacher "My mom is an expert at wind!" and asks, as I'm fitting my old hurricane research team windbreaker over his tiny frame so we can go clear potential flying debris out of the back yard before a thunderstorm "Was this yours when you were a storm chaser?"
(Academomia does not endorse storm chasing by tricycle)
That is pretty cool.
Now I think I'll get started on that literature search before Wild Kratts is over and the baby wakes up.
