Well, I sent my preschoolers off to school last week. I am so blessed by this time I have without my children. Just a few hours of quiet, not negotiating every little situation, not answering questions, not having them at home making a mess and constantly asking for milk - it really benefits us all.
I tell myself "I must put the oxygen mask on myself first." That's what this time is, time to catch my breath. Meanwhile, they are off learning and having fun.
Don't let that pic fool you. Preschool is George's happy place.
I'm using the quiet hours to get us settled in our new house and to clean, cook, and maintain what needs maintaining.
Three cheers for preschool teachers!!!
