“Let’s color for a minute” Rory asks sweetly. It is early morning and Ryder has already declared the day “the best ever!”. No doubt the Krispy Kreme doughnuts left over from my birthday influenced that declaration. I pause to color a three by three sheet of paper. Satisfied, Rory skips off with her crayons. I look back to the screen to complete my request for an exit interview at the end of the month. My time at my job of eight years is coming to an end. The emotions are running high and mixed. This decision was mine. After much thought and prayer it is time to go. In a sentence – the kids need me.
