My 8 weeks are over on Monday and I can't say that I am disappointed. While I truly love the kids and being at school, my family needs to get back in order. I honestly haven't put clothes away for 2 months. They are cleaned and folded and then they make their home on the dining room table. Our dining room table is just a big dresser and honestly in the mornings rather that run up and down stairs I can just shop off the table. So next week I am putting them all away. Also, we haven't had many home cooked meals during the week and I am sick of frozen food. I never thought I would really relish home cooked meals but it is time to start anew. I really don't enjoy cooking but a "real meal" is great. The little kids will be thrilled to not have to rush to dress in the mornings and I know Ben will be ready to quit feeding and dressing kids before he leaves! I need to just state that Ben has been a dream the last few months. I was really sick a couple of the weeks and he did laundry and bathed kids and cooked his share. He deserves to have me home again as well!
I am ready to go home --but I will really miss the kids. Some much more that others. I have learned my tolerance for laziness is very low and I am not good to help kids that don't help themselves. I have learned some great parenting lessons!!!
I hope to post more - hopefully more pics from Halloween!!
