It's so quiet...

If you're a mom you've had those days where if you hear the theme song to Zach and Cody or Phineas and Ferb one more time you might scream. Those are the days all I want to do is curl up with a good book and fall asleep after only reading a few pages. (Just a side note: No one has taken a nap in our house all summer, not even on Sundays.) My children have been Energizer bunnies all summer. Even on the days we go non-stop and I think surely they're gonna crash early, one 30 minute sitcom and they're bouncing off the walls or should I say jumping on the trampoline. :) I love my life, I love my kiddos, most of the time I don't mind the noise...but every once in a while I need a little peace.

This past Sunday my mom took the kids to the farm. We ran a few errands in town, ate lunch and then went our separate ways; her with my kiddos and me in the quiet of my Tahoe all by myself. I may be weird, but I've always been one to get homesick. I could never spend the night with friends as a child. My mom always had to come get me in the middle of the night, and forget about Girl Scout was horrible. Well, that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when things just aren't quite right, that's the feeling I had on my ride home. My dad always refers to that feeling as being "baby sick." I remember going to college and every time I talked to my dad he would tell me he was baby sick. I talked to my dad after Mom and the kids got to the farm and the first thing I told him was that I was baby sick and the house was too quiet. He said, "Just wait until they go off to college."

I've enjoyed these last few days of peace and quiet. I've gotten to have a lunch date with friends, finish a quilt I started several years ago and watch a few movies. I'm about to walk out the door to meet my parents to bring my kids home. I've missed those little people. I wonder what we'll do when we get home? I'm kinda in the mood to watch a little Phineas and Ferb...
