free time?

I remember the little things that I used to take for granted often.

Such as: drinking a cup of coffee in peace, taking a shower and actually blow-drying my hair after, going to a store and taking your time, etc.

Then your MIL takes your granddaughter camping for a few days and you are left to sit here thinking about all of those things you should be enjoying and not taking for granted. Yet, all you are doing is waiting for the day to be over because geeez, it's SO boring without your little gremlin running around.

I'm obviously weak. I have been away from Liv for longer, but usually it is because I have something else going on. I haven't slept in or taken a nap since she's been gone. What am I thinking???

I'm thinking that maybe I enjoy being a mom more than I enjoy my memories of alone time.


  1. I think I would feel the same way in that position even tho I'm always wishing for more me time. Now go take a nap!!

  2. hahaha...seriously, its so weird how you want that free time and then don't know what to do with it!

  3. I guess it's good to get a little reminder every now and then, huh?! I'm the same way...would love some more free time, but then when I get it, all I do is miss my kids.

  4. New follower! So sweet that you miss your precious little one!!! Try to enjoy your time to yourself!
