A Long Overdue Break

It's 8 am here, and the house is completely quiet. As much as I have been longing for some quiet lately, I had to turn the tv on because it was too quiet. My little ones are with my Mom, have been since last night and will be until tomorrow afternoon.

When you stay home with your kids all the time, sometimes you fantasize about your pre-child(ren) life. You know, the one where you could go out to eat in peace, go to a movie, go anywhere you want. Do anything you want. My husband and I are doing that, last night we went out to dinner and tonight we will do something too. But do you know something? My life would be empty, and pointless, without those little girls. My pre-child(ren) life no longer fits. But it sure is nice to drag it out and try it on once in a while!

It's 8 am here, why am I not still in bed???


  1. Wow E - I think I get that. :) I hope you and Corey have some nice time while the girls are with your mom... and it's always good to get a fresh perspective on your life. We can all use one of those!

  2. YEAH for a break! I am so glad that you and your husband are getting some time alone! Enjoy!

  3. I must admit that I'm a bit jealous of the break, but so happy you got one. We all need that time to recharge. It's amazing how even a couple of hours of free time will leave you missing your little ones and feeling better!

    Love and hugs to you all
