Today was the first day in parenting history that I have left my children in a friends care for over a few hours. I left them for 8 hours today! Not only did I leave them today, I will be leaving them for 3 more days as I complete a mandatory training at work.
This is why we work at the Children's Home... So we don't have to send them to daycare. I am with them 24/7. Do I believe in babysitting? Oh, absolutely! Just never happens though in my life.
Prayers were sent up to God as today approached. Thankfully God heard those prayers and my kids had a great time. My DS said he didn't even cry for me! Yippee!
The sad thing though, was that I didn't really get to spend any time with them after dinner/errands/bath then bed. Not compared to the hours and hours and hours that I am with them daily. I know their every emotion in detail! But today, I only got the synopsis of the day... Sniff...
Thankfully, my DD likes to talk so she gave me a detailed version but still. It doesn't compare to really being there.
Sappy, I know. But I love my kids and enjoy being around them.

Here are my sweet darlings playing out on the playground. Don't they look like they are so innocent and sweet? Don't let them fool you!!!

Here I sit, debating whether or not to switch from HSB to here... I really enjoy the community of HSB but don't like the agonizing over designing my blog. I just want to type and post pictures and videos. That is it! So I am checking this out for awhile to see how it goes...
