Today was a lovely day. It started with me sleeping in, and that was followed by two good cups of coffee.
My mother came over and took both children out to lunch and the park, giving me and my husband some much needed quiet time to ourselves. It was lovely; I can’t remember when we’ve had time in the house without the children. It has been a long, long time.
I got things done during that time. It is amazing what you can do when you aren’t diapering, feeding, or comforting someone – or two someones. (Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE my children. It is just that some things that need doing need my undivided attention. Some things also cannot be done in the middle of the night when the children are asleep!).
