For one night I don't want to cook or even serve dinner! I don't want to clean up the kitchen or load the dishwasher. I don't want to bathe the children, dress them, or brush their teeth. I don't want to read stories or fight to get anyone in bed. I don't want to get you a glass of water or take you potty. I don't want to have to keep turning around and coming back to kiss you because you didn't kiss me.
I want to come home tired after a long day and sit in front of the TV. Grab myself something I like to eat (no cooking) and eat it on the couch. Maybe move to my bed and watch more TV. Maybe take a hot shower or bath. Put on comfortable cloths and go to sleep when I'm ready. Ooh maybe watch a movie!
I LOVE my children but gosh would I LOVE just one night off! You can see I wouldn't even know what to do with myself?! For almost 9 years I've nursed, cooked, fed,changed, bathed, dressed, brushed, read, kissed, soothed, etc, etc. I've never had a night off, EVER. I wonder what it's like????
