Free Time

Today, I am hooked on Time to Myself!


I love my kids, but.....


I have really been enjoying the past two weeks now that my kids are back in school.

THERE! - I SAID IT!


I know that I am a 'bad mom.' Of course I miss them! ...and of course I realize they are growing up way too fast! ...... but a few hours alone has enabled me to get my hair cut, get organized, go to the lake with friends (oops - don't tell the kids I went boating and rode a jet ski with a bunch of moms while they were slaving away in school!) take long walks, and paint a few paintings.......




Some I painted just for fun and for my etsy site..........





Others I painted were special orders...........






Here are the angels on their first day of school 2009-10.




Go ahead - give me the 'Bad Mom' award. (I'll take it with me on the boat.)

Amen!!! When my oldest heads back to preschool in a few weeks, I'll still have the 19 month old home with me, but it will feel like more free time. ;)

You go sister! I am so looking forward to some "me" time starting Monday! Mine have been fighting all week and driving me crazy!

Thanks for keeping it real!

You can have some time to yourself just as long as it makes you feel a little bad while you are on jet ski.

In order to be a FANTASTIC mom you need to be refreshed now and then and worry about THEIR mother. She needs some tender loving care too.

Your children look very well tended. :) and i love your humor.
