Who Needed That Break?



Hurray!  After weeks of sick days, field trips and an Inservice, I finally had my 2 1/2 hour break today from my 3 1/2 year old.  Waited patiently all morning watching the clock slowly tic down to 12:30 so I could bundle her up and drop her off at her Early Learning School.  I had time to run a few errands, just hang around the house by myself, read some great blogs and even made time for a little shopping. Love having a couple of hours to myself!

Funny thing is, when I dropped her off and turned to leave, I could feel her little hands on my behind as she struggled to push me out the door.  All I could hear was "Bye Bye Mommy".  Guess I wasn't the only one looking forward to a break!

Don't you love when they WANT a break! It is so much better than having them scream and cry when you leave!!

Ha, ha! And she's just 3-1/2? She sounds pretty independent!

Blog hopping... came across your blog... it's always nice to run into another menopausal mom... I'm staying.

Hi Ladies, thanks for stopping by!

You're absolutely right Lee, I'm so glad she has fun there and doesn't scream her head off those rare days when she does have school.

Hi JAM, thanks for stopping by and for following! yes, this one has to be independent, especially being born to geriatric parents Lol! I'll be checking your blog too, we menopausal moms need to stick together!

I would prefer that any day to them crying when you leave. At least this way you know they are just fine. :)

Hi Buckeroomama, Exactly, at least I know she is having a great time there so I can enjoy those few rare occasions when she actually goes.

Thanks for commenting.

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I really appreciated your words of wisdom. It helped spark a little bit of hope for me and Boo. I'm disappointed but this too shall pass.

I'm following you now because at 46 and pre-menopausal and still having Boo's 2 1/2 year old with us quite a bit, I can sure use some support and friendship.

Thank you again for stopping by.
