A Weekend for Gratitude

Today is Friday folks and do you know what that means? Yep - no daycare kids for this chicky for three whole days!! Whoot! Whoot! Additionally, there is a fair in town and a children's festival so tomorrow will be packed with giggles, adventures and likely a few tears because you know, things like that happen when kids get over stimulated.

And, I just wanted to send out a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has left a comment, emailed or called me with encouragement after reading my last couple of posts. Thank
you. It means so much to me. Truly. And while my break won't happen for a while to come, I am going to enjoy this weekend and view it as a break that I can enjoy with my children. Because believe me, part of the guilt issues that I have about admitting that I need a break is the fact that my munchkins are growing oh so quickly and before long, they will be at the age where I am not cool and I am second choice for entertainment value. Deep down I know that this is what I signed on for and if given a chance, would never trade it for the world. Kind of ironic that all of this is coming to fruition right about Mother's Day no?

I have been on a babysitting circuit this week for my neighbors' kids and having only my own this weekend seems like a breeze.

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you had a good Mother's Day. I know what you are saying about being overwhelmed. Somedays I wonder if it will ever end!

Hope all is well!
