All in School

Today it happened.

For the first time ever, all of my boys were in school. Carter in 1st grade, Luke in preschool, Brayden in special ed preschool.

I was alone. All by myself for a few hours.

What to do?

I went out for a coffee. A pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks was calling my name.

I had no one calling my name. No, Mommy? Or MOMMY!

No school calling me to get Brayden, huge relief.

Just me, a coffee (oh and a slice of pumpkin bread, I love anything pumpkin) and silence.

I missed my boys.

YEAH!! This is wonderful news. I am so glad you were able to have some time to yourself with a coffee and treat. It sounds like a perfect morning.

Shay said...

Hooray for some mommy time!
I bet your boys missed you as well.
Your a great mom-and I love starbucks!

I also love anything pumpkin!! I was so excited when I went to Starbuck's the other day and saw that the pumpkin spice lattes are back. YAY! :)

Isn't it awesome to have some YOU time?

I have to admit that I can't wait for that day and this baby hasn't even been born yet. It was actually (and selfishly) something I thought when that pregnancy test turned positive and in my head popped, "Argh! It's going to take this much longer to be empty nesters!" Now we're excited, but I still wait for the day when everyone is in school and I have a couple hours of quiet! I'm sure I'll miss them, but right now I can't picture that one yet. ;)

Glad you got the chance to have some well deserved Mommy time.
