Today I am thankful for getting a break from the kids. My house stays clean, there's not as much laundry or dishes to do and I get to relax more. I can even nap when I need to. But I am missing them. I miss the hugs and kisses, knowing that they love me and want me to hold them, their cute little laughs, seeing them play, etc. It's like a part of myself is gone and I don't feel whole without them here. I love my children and am so thankful for them.
