The other day as I was putting around the house doing all the cumbersome things that usually fill my day from laundry to dishes to changing diapers, I began fantasizing about what my days will be like when all my kids are in school and I have the day to myself from 8am-4pm.
What would I do with all that freedom?
Then with amusement I realized, "Really? It's not like you have anything better to do."
What would I do? Go the grocery store? The gym? ...without kids? Maybe get a job? Big whoop.
Then who would entertain me with stories about Kung Fu and Elmo when I'm driving in the car? What would be the fun of putting a package of marshmallows into the cart at the grocery store without someone whooping in delight at the sight of them? Churros at Costco would lose their magic without the sticky hands and sugary grins.
A resounding nothing.
