A Short Confession

I was not one of those parents who felt guilty when both of my children started school. I didn't yearn for one of them to be home with me. I didn't feel the need to miss them. Hell, I practically did cartwheels to the car on the morning that KiKi got to stay at school for the first time for a full day. Does that make me sound mean? I don't know.

I love my kids. I really really love my kids. They are phenomenal. If you met them, you would agree. I am not just saying that because I am their mom. However, I really enjoy my time without them. I can get things done!! I can workout on a regular basis. I can go shopping without keeping myself on a schedule.

Tonight, my kids have movie night after school. They won't be home until 5:30pm. Can I admit that I am really excited?

The Man's Just Wanted to Say: This has nothing to do with the wife's post but....FINALLY THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO WWE!!!!...I haven't been this excited in years. As an avid watcher of "wrasslin" I have been waiting for this moment for 7 years. Tuesday morning I went to work out at 5:30 am, and we I came back I ate breakfast and read the RAW results online. As soon as I read that The Rock has returned, I bee-lined it to my room to watch the recorded show....and I was in euphoria!! Rocky Rocky Rocky!!! So pencil me in to watch Wrestlemania!!! The "People's Champion" has returned!! IF YA SMELL..WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN!

(yes my husband watches "wrastlin'" and yes, he is as excited about The Rock coming back to WWE as I am about my kids staying at school til 5:30)

I cried when I left DD at nursery for the first time but only because I thought she would be upset. She loved it and, from day two, I love it too!
BTW, I linked to you in my blog yesterday.

I posted at length when my little guy finally went to school all day. Because of the large age gap between him and the teens, I had been in the house either full or half day with a small child for SIXTEEN consecutive years. Do you think I was dancing round the kitchen that day?

I take holidays purposely when my two are at school so that I can enjoy a whole day to myself or for hubby and I to go out without them whining on at us.

Maybe thats why schools were invented?

You can tell your husband that I used to watch the wrestling. My little brother and I went to see them on tour at Whitley Bay Ice Rink in the early 1990's. I think The Undertaker was there - but it might have been the period when he was played by someone else.

Aside from that, I'm really looking forward to the day my kids go to school. I love them, but I love having a break. At the moment I'm eagerly anticipating the end of breastfeeding, and I never thought I'd say that.

DD won't be starting kindergarten for a while yet but I'm secretly looking forward to having some time back too. Shhhh.... don't tell anyone!
