It's quiet in the house today. No one is screaming, crying, fighting, running. I haven't changed countless poop diapers. No one has left handprints on the TV, mushed cookies into the carpet, or spilled mac and cheese all over the kitchen floor. No one has demanded "SNACKY," "Water" or "Potty Time, HURRY!!" I have not watched one episode of Mickey's Clubhouse or Einsteins. The curtains have not been ripped down, the blinds have not been bent, and toys have not been "dumped." And not one person has wiped their nose on my shirt today, although Hubby did try!

I took a 2 hour nap today and I did not wake up to anyone yelling "Mommy, I awake!!! HURRY!! HURRY!" I watched back to back episode of General Hospital and ate an entire meal without having to share it!

It's pretty obvious that my boys are not home today. They went out with Stregga and Papa for the day!! They went to the library and Chuck E. Cheese. Cenzo told me they are having a "venture." I think he mean adventure and I was pretty impressed he knows that word, LOL!!
Before they left this morning, Cenzo said "No, I stay here with you Mommy." But, as soon as Papa stepped in the door it was like I was yesterday's trash and the boys were yelling, "BYE," "Bye-bye!!" And off they went. They are helping Papa celebrate his birthday!! And they will be staying overnight at Stregga and Papa's. They won't be home until tomorrow AFTERNOON!! WOW!!!

I haven't had this much free time since October (the last time they slept over there) And I am enjoying it!!!

BUT, it is quiet in the house. There is no one laughing and being silly. No one kissing me and saying, "I yuv you Mommy." No one making Baby Mickey sing funny songs. No one tackling me with bear hugs. No one has colored me gorgeous pictures. No one asking for "rock, rock" and bedtime stories. No one to tuck in to bed.

And so, I am enjoying my much needed day off. I am relaxing and trying to re-energize myself! I am grateful that my parents are giving the boys a great "venture." I know how much they love spending time with them! And tomorrow, I will enjoy waking up late and having a quiet cup of tea. But, when they get home I will be glad to see them and happy to have our organized chaos back in full swing!!!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
