Preface: I know in life, you often get what you deserve. Those of you that know me well...know I talk alot. I think I enjoy it...and must have to meet some subconscious word quota each day.
Now...I have two very talkative, inquisitive little girls. So last night....when Larry got off work, I went out by myself....ALL BY MYSELF....and enjoyed an evening of running errands and a little bit of shopping! This might not have meaning to all of you, but anyone that has a chatty two or five year old girl will know what I am talking about. I really do try to give meaningful answers to their questions...but there are only so many times I can answerWHY, WHY, WHY....and WHY???? As a mother, there are few times in life that I get to be all by myself...with no noise, no questions. Showers, car rides, reading, even the restroom (sorry for bringing that up)...I ALWAYS have company~
In saying that, I need to explain further.... I LOVE my girls and I feel so blessed to be a mother, but every once in a while, I just want a little bit of space. My girls are my life and my joy, but it was so nice to sit in the car...and not answer a million questions. To run in and out of a store...again without questions...no cart...no snacks or bribery to distract from other purchases. No diapers...no goldfish...no kid cd's blasting in the car...no diaper bag...nothing, but me...a normal purse...and silence. I didn't even want my cell phone...
IT WAS WONDERFUL! Now I am rejuvinated and ready for my chatty girls, but wow... it was nice!
