Eric and Michael are down visiting his parents. Eric will be heading to the Keys and Michael will stay with Grandma.
This evening it was just me and my girls. We had a blast. I busted out Shania and we danced and giggled and pretended to be horses. I was the mama horse, "of course" (you saw it coming).
It made me realize, as a parent, I often get so caught up in the everyday responsibilities and I don't take time to just play with my kids. The look on the girls faces said it all. They had this look like, "Wow, mommy, we didn't know you could be so much fun!" I do play with the kids, but not nearly often enough. The sound of children laughing has this wonderful, medicinal quality, don't you think? I can't help but laugh along with them. I love my kids and I'm so glad God chose me the be their parent. I pray I will honor and glorify Him in the way I raise them. Eric, too.......I'm not doing this alone!!! That's a whole 'nother blog. I commend single parents raising multiple children. It's hard enough when you have a spouse!
I miss my boys...........
