My kids are spending three weeks with their dad which means I am Kid-Free for 3 weeks...
The day I took the kids to the airport, afterwards a friend of mine asked "are congratulations or condolences in order?" which was very fitting. On the one hand I miss my kids like crazy, yet it is nice getting a break from being mom all the time. Being able to run errands by myself, go out if I want without needing a sitter, I only have myself to take care of. I don't get breaks very often so I am trying to make the most of it and focus on the positive rather than how much I miss them both.
I will certainly have a lot less laundry to do for these three weeks!!!
