And Then There Were None

Posted on: September 4, 2013

As of today, all three kids are out of the house for 5+ hours.

*The heavens parted and angels sing*

Julia has on-campus school M/W. Hannah and Joseph’s preschool (aka Mother’s Day Out) started today, which also meets M/W. That leaves me kid-free from 9-2. Can I just tell ya, I haven’t been kid-free on this kind of basis since having kids? I’m just a little giddy

In fact, as of this morning, I’ve already worked out, my house is clean, and I drank my coffee in silence. Silence. Ahhh….

Now, I’m sure I’ll hear all those “You’ll miss these days. Just you wait…”

Yes. I will miss these days. I will miss the days when my babies are little. I will miss the days when Julia is convinced that I know everything, when Hannah thinks I am the most beautiful woman, and Joseph chooses me over anyone else.

Yes, I will miss these days.

But, honestly, having a reprieve twice a week helps keep this mama sane. We decided to have a classical education approach with Julia (and later with Hannah and Joe Joe) just so I/we could spend more time with them. So, as much as I know I will miss these days of having littles, I am really enjoying having some down time.

Besides, we all know come 2 o’clock, I’ll be itching to see my bambinos. I’m a softy like that.

Girl, I’m right there with ya. I’ve got 2 hours of quiet each day and it’s amazing! Enjoy your time alone.

So great! I also can’t get over that blouse- love it big time!

One of my friends called it a “healthy break” which I totally agree. I love my kids but I need to purpose to make time for me so that I can be a better mom. Just a few weeks ago, both my kids went to school full time and now the house is quiet during the day. On the first day of school, I treated myself to a Starbucks and wandered around Barnes & Noble. Gotta do that again (especially now that PSL are back in season!).
Don’t feel guilty about being giddy that you are kid-free for 2 days a week!

Thanks ladies! I figured most moms would understand the need for some quiet time. 😉
