The second the sun burst through the clouds and filled my house with light, I said, “Girls, get your coats on!” We couldn’t miss it, I wasn’t about to take something I haven’t seen in months for granted!
Yes, Camryn was outside with water shoes and no socks on. I somehow missed that in our scramble to get out of the house.
My dad called a little while ago and asked if he and my mom could keep Summer and Camryn overnight until tomorrow when Joe and I go over to their house to watch a UK basketball game. I knew they would love to have a sleepover and spend some time with their grandparents so I said sure. The first thing they asked when I told them where they were going was, “Do we get pancakes for breakfast?!”
They left a few minutes ago. It’s nice to have peace and quiet around here... but at the same time I feel like part of my body is gone with my girls. I’m sure it’s like that for most parents! I’m going to try and enjoy my time without parental responsibility and get some things done around here. And maybe watch a “grown-up” movie or two.
