Don't hate me

Sweet Mimi and Papa called and asked if they could meet us half-way and take all three children until Wednesday. Without even a nanosecond's hesitation, we agreed. I love my babies, but I need my space and time to get to all the stuff that there's just no time for. Every Mommy feels my pain at times. I know I will be aching for them by Tuesday night, but right now it's all very exciting!

We had dinner together at a great Mexican restaurant. Dinner was divine, by the way. No one begging for a happy meal, no one wiggling in my lap or elbowing me. No begging any little person to eat their veggies. Nope, just me and my man with the cheese dip all to ourselves. I'm as selfish as I am goofy, apparently.This picture captured our expression on the way out to dinner. Aren't we purty? Can you tell we need a break?

I don't hate you, but I'll admit to being a wee bit jealous. ;-P

Enjoy your down time. Get lots accomplished and be sure to get in some fun *you* time.

Sweet! I wonder what I'd do! Probably read, drink coffee and go to stores where children can't go.

Enjoy! Happy turkey time!

Oh how peaceful it is in your home. I am glad you get some time and we got to play with the kids last night. Baby O had a blast. So good they could get together.

Oh how divine! I am sure you enjoyed every minute. To have parents within a "meet you halfway" distance... that would be wonderful!

And Happy Late Birthday! : )
