I will not cook or clean at all, except what the kids eat. We'll have cuddle up days and watch movies and snuggle. So the mad rush is over, I can finally rest.
It is not good that one finds one's self being glad when your mother is gone. Mothers should be better mothers than this. but your rest time sounds good. cuddle up with the kids and rest as much as you can. You deserve it. I can imagine it now.
When I was babysitting my grandchildren and they were small, and I was sick, I got sheets and brought them to the livingroom. they made all sorts of intricate tents and houses out of the tents. they were where I could see them and I could rest and watch tv. this is a good thing you have reminded me of. my grandchildren are all teenagers and adults now, and I am no longer able to tend to babies. Have three great grandbabies, but can't babysit them. So those days for me are no more. but it is a blessing to be reminded of them.
