Sigh of Relief

what I haven't been doing:

* worrying about next week
* spending more than 1/2 hour per day on the computer
* blogging


(photo taken last summer)

what I have been doing:

* enjoying the girl being home with me, just us
* wondering at when she became such a young lady
* and so tall
* letting her lead me on a 2 hour walk
* eating ice cream in the middle of the afternoon
* going to the playground
* trips to target where I get talked into stuff I never buy
* feeling sad that she's starting daycamp next week
* reading lots
* loving her

see you next week

That sounds like a perfect way to spend your week. I think so many of us parents would love to have more like that!

Ti said...

So glad you get to spend this time with your daughter. I am also spending time with my kids today as one of them was not feeling well so I am working from home. Not too bad for a Friday.

Sounds like an excellent time! Have fun!

Gorgeous picture! Glad you're having a good time.

Karen said...

Sounds like the perfect week for you - just what was needed. Enjoy!

Tara said...

Thank you all for your kind words! I feel as though I'm in the honeymoon phase of parenthood - done for the most part with the tantrums and issues of young children, and haven't gotten to adolescence yet when they don't want your company!

Staci said...

the photo is gorgeous and I love what you ARE doing instead of what wasting these precious minutes with your little girl. They're only this age once and before you know it..poof...they're out of the house!!

Les said...

Oh, Tara. What a lovely post. It's a keeper. If I wrote it, I'd probably print a copy and pin it to my bulletin board near by computer. I remember when my daughter (now 25 1/2) was that age. We had such fun together.

Tara said...

Staci, isn't it the truth!

Les, thank you, what a nice thing to say, and what a great idea you've given me.

Beautiful post!

Tara said...

Hi Robin, thank you!

Iliana said...

So happy to hear the worry cycle is going away. I hate those - feels like you live in a fog doesn't it. Not getting your stuff done and all.

Anyway, sounds like you are making up for time lost with a wonderful time with the girl. Wishing her a great start at daycamp and many more fun adventures for you girls :)

What you've been doing sounds like heaven. Hope you enjoyed lots!
