My parents recently had the boys overnight. While I wish I could say that we took advantage of the opportunity and called friends or had an amazing date night, we just stayed home and read and watched TV.
The next morning, Alain made cappuccinos and we had breakfast in bed. We chatted, read some more. I took a long shower and even filed my nails. Alain went for a run.
In other words, we did "us" as we were before we had children. Instead of going crazy, we enjoyed a little peace and quiet. Simple, but oh so enjoyable. I sometimes say I get a rest by going to work. I work hard when I'm in the office, but I also enjoy time to myself in my office when I can just think and concentrate. That silence gives me a chance to breathe, rejuvenate, and get my head on straight.
Is there anything you miss from the time when you didn't have little ones yet?
