I remember thinking that it would never end- sleepless nights and busy days of chasing toddlers and burping babies. Cleaning up fingerprints, spills, toys and yes… throw up. Wondering if I’d ever have time to myself. Now everyday my house is empty during the day and most days I AM LONELY! I miss them! Okay yes, I do enjoy some of my alone time, but I’m always happy when they come back! This little guy turned 16 today. (He’s not so little anymore!) He got his drivers license. When he drove away alone, without me, I cried. I had an emptiness in my stomach and my heart. He was so excited and happier than I’ve probably ever seen him. That made it a little better for me.
