Grandmothers are Wonderful!
This is now night number three, yes three, without the kiddos at home. Truly amazing just how much stuff you can get done without little ones under foot. BC (before children), I thought I was a pretty busy person. You just cannot truly appreciate all you do until the children are gone and you get a little glimpse of your life BC. Of course this all is possible due to the amazing person we all like to call grandmother, or in our case Pappi. Pappi decided to take the boys to Alabama for a week vacation to go visit family and leaving daddy and mama at home all by ourselves. I wonder at the true sacrifice (or sanity!) of this woman who has decided that if will be FUN to take a 3 1/2 year old and 2 year old on a 10 hour driving trip (one way). I can hardly tolerate one hour in the car with the little darlings...much less 1o hours. However, I am truly grateful that we have this time to ourselves. Mostly to get our bedroom done....ugh...but also to have a little grownup fun.....Now that is truly wonderful!
