Aubrey(4) and Emma(2) just had their first spend the night party…away from home. For almost an EN-TIRE 24 hours, it was just me and sweet baby Sadie. I had thoughts, in complete sentences. I went to the bathroom, without anyone telling me how to wipe. I ate 3 meals without anybody asking for a bite or touching my food. I took a bath without anyone pounding on the door and screaming, “MOMMA, I NEEEEED YOU!” I went to sleep when Sadie did and didn’t have to play musical beds for 2 hours after she was asleep. I woke up and went for a walk and didn’t have to stop to examine every rock and blade of grass.
Emma did her potty tricks in someone else’s floor. They went to sleep in someone else’s bed. (And no, I will NOT give you my friend’s name. I know how you think…and you’re not going to steal away my new BFF so that she’ll take YOUR kids for 24 hours!)
They were ALMOST gone long enough for me to miss them!
