I have a very stressful meeting coming up tonight. They are going to try to roll right over us and it is going to involve a lot of negotiating. This is my version of a power suit. Red snakeskin, leather skirt, lots of studs. I'm putting on my armor to get ready for battle. But it was DS2's first day off of school for the summer and he did NOT want mommy to go to work. I was going to do a fierce "don't mess with me" pose, but instead you are getting the attached at the hip "mommy gives lots of huggies" pose.

ETA: Success! We held our ground and stood up for ourselves. It took a LOT of negotiating (the meeting lasted two hours just on this one topic!) and both sides had to make concessions, but in the end we all agreed to a compromise solution that we felt everyone can live with. I'll be glad when this is all wrapped up so that the work atmosphere will be a lot less tense and we can move forward. Interestingly, another female partner who was on my side also wore a red dress to this meeting. So red is definitely a power color!
Fortunately I got home just in time to tuck the kids in bed. My little one was SO happy to see me, he kept hugging me over and over and saying "Mama Mama! I weewy weewy weewy missed you! I love you I like you!" I took some more pics so you could see how happy he was compared to his little sad face this morning! Worth it to come home to all those kisses and smiles!
