The kids went away to enjoy the country again… isn’t that what summer is for?
Most parents enjoy their down time but I’m having a hard time enjoying coming home to their empty room, toys standing still in time. I miss them. I often ask my husband if we’ve taken this attachment parenting thing just a bit too far. We are use to being with each other 24-7. Even going to work and school by day is too much time away but we are all adjusting to it slowly.
I imagine some day they will not want to spend sooooo much time with me so I may as well get use to it. For now I like taking pictures of their still room in summer light. Without the kids around to chatter I could actually hear birds chirping outside their bedroom windows this morning.
