I have had just one child at home for the past several days - almost a week. My daughter went to visit her grandma for a week just before we start school. It's amazing how quiet the house is with just one. When Jon isn't talking or making noise - it's quite. With two that NEVER happens.
With just one home I get so much more done and i'm able to actually think about something for more than 2 seconds. lol!
Please don't take this wrong - I love my daughter dearly and would never trade her for anything in the world. It was nice to just have some time apart. She loved being with grandma and I was able to re-evaluate just how precious she is to me and lighten her work load seeing how much she really does do.
I can't wait to have her back but the alone time that I got with my son I would never trade either. First children really have it made - they get all kinds of alone time with mom. Any children after that do not unless the time is scheduled.
Just some ponderings of today.
