You don’t know peace

until you’ve had children, and then had them leave for a period of time.  The Hubs and I have been very lucky to live near our families during these years that our kids are younger.  And even luckier that they like to take the kids for overnight trips.  Tonight is just one of those nights.  So far The Hubs and I have watched 3 movies and haven’t gotten off the couch unless it involved important things like the leftover KrispyKremes in the kitchen.

Yes, it’s Sunday, and yes, the kids have school in the morning but does taking a 1/2 day on a Monday really make a difference?  In my professional educator opinion, no, not in the long run.

Now it’s off to have a night of sleep that doesn’t include being peed on, awoken by demands for more milk, or smothered by ten million stuffed animals.  But it’s also a night without being awoken by little arms wrapped around your neck.  They can’t all be wins.

    I love overnights with Grandma and Grandpa, though we usually waste them actually doing things – grocery shopping, hanging pictures in the new house, etc. Once in a while we have a couch night though, and it’s amazing.

    yep-that’s my sunday nights! I usually veg out instead of doing productive things. And feel on a little bit guilty about that.

    So friggin’ jealous. Think your in-laws are up for one more kiddo on those overnights? What’s four, really, when they’ve already got three to deal with?
