as a working mom, fields trips with your kiddo can mean a lot of work, just to get ready to go. especially when missing a day means tracking down a sub, writing sub plans, bribing some kids for good behavior, and so on. but man, I wouldn't have missed it for the world. getting to see everly have fun with her friends at the pumpkin farm was a new experience that made our day very special, and getting to have mommy stay home from school for a day made it even more magical. grammie playing hookie too, well, there you go! win win all around.
