As much as I love my kids, last night/this morning was a shock.
The Sister-in-Law had the boys for a sleep-over last night, and while that's nothing new, it usually happens when I work early the next day, so I don't get to reap the benefits of a morning to myself.
This morning was different.
Got up, had coffee, shower, etc, and then got to actually sit and watch the morning news without anyone climbing all over me or demanding my attention. It was a teasing reminder of what life was like before kids.
I'm glad I got to enjoy it, because they will be back tonight.
....and I wouldn't have it any other way.
