|My daughter has this pillow on her bed - she picked it out herself.|
I miss them when they are gone and sometimes I feel guilty for the deep breath and break in responsibility that I get when they go. I've learned to let go so much more, to trust their little selves to Hands greater than mine. It hasn't always been easy and still isn't, and I always look forward to their return.
So tonight I'm catching up on some housework. I'm spending time with my Honey. I'm exercising and might even color my hair. I'm letting them enjoy time away and getting ready for when they arrive back home with all their noise and mess. It's a crazy life, but it's our life.
Do you share parenting time with a former spouse? How do you spend those hours? What would you do with an evening of no responsibility?
