Our kids were away for two nights during the school holidays (courtesy of a camp and generous in-laws).
First thing I did was sweep the kitchen floor just so I could enjoy two days without stepping on anything crunchy. It's the small things that count.
It was very restful but a bit too quiet (am I really saying that?!)
What it made me realise was:
- My kids create a lot of mess, require a lot of feeding and make a lot of noise - so it's OK for me to feel tired at the end of each day.
- What exactly was I doing with all that extra time before I had kids? I don't even remember anymore!
