I love my job. I really, really do. There are days that I just feel overwhelmed by all my housewife-ly mommy duties–but honestly I wouldn’t change it for a second.
I say this, because I have been taking it for granted, and I didn’t realize it. I’ve come accustomed to always having my kiddos around.
We live away from all of our family, and I have major issues with trusting people to watch my kiddos. Needless to say, our breaks are few and far between. And, well, we are okay with that.
My sister in law surprised me this week, and came down for the big kids’ Basketball game and offered to take our 3 year old back home with her–until Saturday!
I hestitated, but we agreed.
It has been ever so quiet today, but yet very productive while my big kids were off to school. I was home, by myself for most of the day.
A quiet day, and a much needed break, are definitely a finer thing in life. But you know what? So is mommyhood–and boy have I missed it today.
I miss my baby! I’ll be sure to catch up on those snuggles when you come home!
