Now don't get me wrong Mom's need free time, I know this. I definitely enjoy have a little time to get things done on my own, but did you catch that? I said a LITTLE time. I have never, I repeat Never had this much time alone since before I had Sophie. To add to this, I have actually never been in my house without any of them for more that an hour tops!
So when the morning came and went and our breakfast dishes lay messy in the sink, coffee cups on the counter and I stood there in silence for a moment, I knew it was time for me to decide, what on earth am I going to do for the next 24 hours???
This is what I came up with...
The garden has been looking a bit unruly, time to get that under wraps with steel wire cages.
I followed this up with a leisurely jog, shower and I am expecting the hubby home any minute.
Whoa! So there you have it. My time alone for 24 hours. It wasn't glamorous, but it was productive and I am more ready than ever to see my babies. I miss the noise, the voices calling 'Mama' and fixing meals for them.
What I learned most about this time alone is that one day I will have a quiet, tidy house because my littles will be all grown up, so for now bring on the pitter patter of those sweet little feet and the best hugs around my legs while I'm at the stove cooking!
My babies I've missed you, it's time to come home.
