You wouldn't be a true mommy without number 43. Glad you had fun. I'm sure your family is thrilled to have you back.

It's hard to go do something fun and not have the kids with me. I'm always thinking "M would have loved this" or "K would have a blast if he was here."

Takes some of the fun of it away, but not for too long.

oh getaways are always nice. Glad to hear that you had so much fun.

So glad you had a great time. And that 8 number is a priceless gift all unto itself, isn't it? The recognition that being at home with a toddler all day is HARD is so important for husbands to understand (and so few do).

Cute. Whenever I'm away from my kids, I notice every little adorable child within a 15 mile radius and it makes me miss my own kids.

That sounds like fun! You stayed up past midnight?!?! What's that like?

It sounds simply fabulous!! Except the 43 - isn't the biggest conundrum of parenting? You want a break, and when you get it, you spend much time missing the kids?!

2 walks on the beach and 30 minutes of massage? You lucky dog.

And glad that you're all okay after that nice weather you've been having :)

A great time!

When I'm without kids, it takes about ten minutes before I'm wondering what they're up to and I'm desperate to get back to them.

Every mama needs a break and your break sounded lovely even if 43 other people's kiddos made you miss your own :) It means you're a good mama, breaks and all!
