A week away from it all...
The kids and I took a trip to my parent's house in Wisconsin last week for a much-needed vacation. A week away in a quiet suburban neighborhood with nothing to do but play outside in the fresh air did wonders for us all. (I don't think my kids have ever slept better - or gotten dirtier!) My biggest concern was to remember to reapply our sunscreen. It was easy, breezy vacation living.
And for the first time in a long time, I can honestly say that I feel rested. Really rested. Since I've become a mom to twins, I've gotten used to feeling at least a little bit tired (if not completely exhausted) much of the time. They wear me out! I guess it's a rite of mommyhood.
So this little break from normal, this little trip away where we didn't have anything to do but enjoy each other's company was everything I could have asked for.
(My daily afternoon naps were pretty nice, too.)
PS - Happy belated Fourth of July! Hope you had a spectacular holiday weekend!
