My husband and I were able to get away for a day 1/2 to Chicago. He had business and I tagged along for a break. I was so excited to have some “me” time and relax and have a break. My wonderful mom, whom I have written about before, came down and stayed with our 3 children. I wasn’t even gone for 7 hours and I was flipping through the TV and came across “Sponge Bob” and “Super Why”, some of our kids favorite shows. I immediately got teary and weepy and already started missing my kids. So, I guess no matter how far away I go, how desparately I need a “get away”, I am still a mom who loves and misses her kids. I was thankful for the break and the change of scenery, but nothing can beat the greeting I got from my kids after returning home.
