Ok, so my son is visiting his grandpa at Ohio for summer vacation. I was not able to go, because some things need to be taken care of, so my husband took him. They are going to be gone for two weeks. It has been already one week, and I have to admit that I miss him so much.
The first two days were great. I had all the rime for me, I did not have to worry about meals, playing, etc and I had the opportunity to do my staff and have my alone time. It felt great, and I felt kind of guilty for enjoying it so much...
Now, I miss him so much. I wake up early in the morning and I miss his little voice asking me to play or for food.
It was great not having to worry about someone messing the house and have to say pick up your toys, but I now realize that after you become a mom, this is your new life. This is what we do now, we take care of little people and it gives us a satisfaction doing it.
I cannot wait for him to come back and to play with him. We have been talking on skype and when he says he loves me a misses me, I just get my teared eyes.
I guess the me time is not as great as the family time anymore.... although do not get me wrong, once in a while I would take a day off from all the cleaning, playing and being a mom and wife again.
