I’m sure my colleagues are wondering why I chose to work from home today. Certainly my teenage son is old enough to be left alone. However, there are times when leaving a teenage boy to his own devices has too much potential to lead to bad things happening. It’s not that I think that YaYa will leave the house in search of trouble. Not at all. However, he could go out in search of junk food, skip eating any real food all together, and run around with the dogs until they all collapse from exhaustion.
Today, I’ve decided that I can get my day’s worth of work done, throw a load or two into the laundry, and give me boy the TLC that I wish I was always around to provide him with. And although he is sitting on the couch with a bag of Doritos, he also has a hot cup of lemon, ginger, honey, has had his back pounded, taken a decongestant, and eaten a decent breakfast.
