My week without kids- so far.

Has been mixed.

It started off wonderfully. Spent the whole weekend with my hubby. We had a date night, watched a movie, ate Mexican, had Starbucks for desert, stayed up late, went shopping for Santa. It was just peaceful. We weren't rushed or worried about getting back to the kids. It was just nice. We even slept until almost noon Saturday morning. Wonderful.

Then Sunday afternoon we get word that Jon Kent had some symptoms of pink eye. I told them to keep an eye (no pun intended) on him and I would check back with them the next morning. I also told them to give him some children's benadryl just in case it was allergies. So Monday morning I call and check on him and he hadn't gotten better and in fact his other eye was started to do the same thing. So I call his old pediatrician in Alabama and after jumping through hoops and explaining our situation (I'm in South Carolina, he's in Alabama with family, we were told earlier this would be fine, etc. etc. etc.) they gave us an appointment. It was/is pink eye. So he is on some drops for that. And I am hoping, hoping, hoping that no one else gets it. Zoey told my daddy that the reason Jon Kent's eye looked like that was because she hit him. That girl is a hoot.

Kent's momma called and told me that Sunday night Jon Kent was watching TV before bed and he turned around to her with tears in his eyes and a pout on his face. She asked him what was wrong and he said, "Do you think Jesus will make me see again?" She said he was so serious and sincere. So she went and recleaned his eyes for him and once she did that he said, "I can see again! I can see!!". That boy is such a sweet heart and so tenderhearted. If he keeps that sweet heart of his he is going to make a wonderful husband someday. But according to him he is going to live with me forever! That's my boy!!

So, so far my week has been good and has had a little bad to it. I miss my babies, but I am enjoying my free time to get things done and to just do it in my own time. I think after this week I will be a better mother for taking this break. At least I hope so!

I would miss them so much...especially knowing one of them is sick.

But I'm sure the alone time was wonderful. :)
