As I sit here at a library computer typing I am thinking about how crazy the last three weeks have been while my husband has visited family in China . I am also very grateful he will be home soon and I will no longer be single handedly taking care of our three childrens. The day after Christmas my husband left to visit his family. Since then I have been trying like crazy to keep up with our three very active children. F is 8 yrs old and a loving sensitive boy. F is also very hyperactive and has Tourrettes Syndrome . SB is 6 years old and a fun but slightly bossy girl. Finally, LL is 4 1/2 and waiting impatiently to turn 6 which to her mind it the the number to be. All three are great kids and I enjoy all of them but as I have been telling them "I am ready for a vacation , with no kids and no husband" . Ideally, 2 days by myself in a nice hotel room with a jacuzzi and a spa. Oh what the heck, if I am going for the daydream , then my vacation will be at a Spa, and there will be horses and I can go riding . Reality intrudes, my vacation when my husband returns will more than likely be 5 minutes alone in the bathroom with a book.
Time to join the mom parade again as it is 3 pm and school will be getting out soon. May the afterschool crazyness begin until I fall into bed exhausted.
