So, hubby’s been gone all week…and to be honest, we’ve actually been okay. As much as I’ve missed him, I’ve been doing more than surviving. And I’ll tell you my secret: letting loose. Now, I don’t mean all rules out the window; but I really felt the Lord nudging me to let loose of my Type A tendencies and just enjoy my kiddos this week…not something that comes very naturally to me.
Here are some of the fun things I’ll savor from letting loose:
Pool fun-now this is the blog “friendly” picture; but let me just tell you-a slide was added to the mix and bathing suits were traded in for birthday suits. Oh my, I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in some time!
MORE dominoes–this boy turned into quite the domino building machine this week…
as well as GeoTrax, Build-a-Road (no picture),
marble runs (he cut holes out of cereal boxes and taped magnets on the back),
and Hexbugs (accompanied by, you guessed it, dominoes).
Our house looked like a war zone at one point. I did demand a clean up that particular evening!
Oh, and a little bit of schoolwork was squeezed into the mix! 🙂

Sometimes when its just the kids and I, with no daddy, no appointments, no playdates, I feel more able to let them have that freedom… and for me to enjoy it! I have been enjoying your blog!
Thanks, Annette. And being solo has it’s advantages…like I can be as selfish with my time as I want to be when the kiddos are in bed. Hehe.
