Simple Pleasures

having my mom in town (all the way from IL) ...

watching her enjoy her granddaughters ...

being able to leave the house in the middle of the afternoon while she babysits my napping little ones ...

running errands ... driving my car ... all by myself ...

being able to call a good friend and talk (on my hands-free headset) without being interrupted ...

listening to whatever I want on the radio ... including Jesse McCartney's Leavin' (I love that song!) and rocking out like a crazy teenager ...

having only myself to get out of the car and into various stores ... no car seat buckling and unbuckling ... no hand holding ... no stroller pushing ... no carrier wearing ... aaaaahhhh!  the freedom ...

devouring a really fresh donut with chocolate icing ... and not sharing it with a two year old ... and not having to clean up the mess she was sure to make while eating a donut with chocolate icing ...

cleaning out my inbox and answering lots of messages ...

yeah, it's been a good afternoon!

I love it when Husband takes over and watches the baby while I do my stuff uninterrupted. It's like a luxury after you have kids, huh?
