Yesterday, at the awesome blog Avante Garde Parenting, I was featured as the parent of the week! This blog is a must for all parents who want to be good parents. She offers great tips, and my favorite: parenting quick challenges. Go check it out!
My husband and I left the children with my mother for a couple of days and flew off to Philadelphia. What a lovely little city! We had just one night and then the next day (yesterday) spent in meetings, but what a night! I love being in a city where we can walk to anywhere. We had a fantastic dinner at a little tapas place called Amada and then walked into a tiny bar where there was a jazz duo playing. You simply can't find such things where I live! We walked back to the hotel in the snow, which if you watched the news you know was really coming down by then! It was magical.
I feel a touch guilty for one thing: I didn't really miss my kids! Is that abnormal? Both my husband and I relished the peace and quiet, the uninterrupted romantic dinner and the full night of sleep (I didn't get out of bed for 8 hours in a row - though I did wake up at 2am wondering if I should be doing something!). I'm happy to be home and I got some amazing hugs this morning, but boy did I enjoy having two days and one night off!
How do you feel when you're away from your kids?
