And Then There Were None
Posted September 4, 2013on:
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.
