What means a lot to me....

There are a ton of things that mean a lot, but here on day 26 of the challenge with two toddlers and no free time, there is one thing that stands out above all things...
When John takes the kids off my hands for a few hours means more to me at this time of my life than anything. I don't get opportunities to feel like an adult very often. I cherish any time I can get on my own: to read a book, to drive alone, to SHOWER for goodness sake (there's nothing like trying to wash your hair as your 3 year-old is staring at you and asking questions like "What's that hair down there for, mommy?")...

This picture was taken at a Wiggles concert, which as you can see, John thoroughly enjoyed. I'm just glad that he volunteered to go, and I got a nap. I can't believe there was a time in my life when I had too much free time on my hands. Just one more thing I will never again take for granted, at least not until the kids are in college... :-)

Dear Tree,

If you just opened your mouth and howled, this would be the same expression your apple was wearing in yesterday's pic.

Love,
Laurie
