It was on my lunch break, and I was tired from working with the kids all morning. He said to me that he wished they wouldn’t wear me out so much. He said it bugged him that they took away my energy for spending time with him.
There’s some merit to that, but not much. That was just the sort of job I had. And kids need time and energy. That’s the way things work.
He told me that I’d make a great mom someday. But I don’t think he knew what that meant.
