I am currently bracing myself for a new stage of life:
Child free days.
Very soon I am going to have all of my seven cherubs attending school.
I will have child free days, all to myself.
Amazing! I never thought these days would come.
I have had a child or children at home for 13 years straight now.
Child free days seemed so far away and yet now they seem to have come so fast.
I am still trying to get my head around it happening, it being real.
Part of me is delirious with excitement and the other part of me wants to cry deep sobs in my room.
I am going to miss those crazy games I have to play that bore me to death.
I am going to miss the concerts, the tantrums and sweet memories of little ones running around my home.
My cherubs are growing up so fast and I am so proud of who they are today.
But, I will sure miss having a cherub at home.
In preparation for this new stage of my life I have started talking to myself more, a natural progress I think :)
I have started writing a list of all the fun activities I want to do by myself.
So far my list includes: afternoon sleeps, watching movies and reading books.
Yes, I am sure going to miss my cherubs but seriously...sleeping, movies and books is looking pretty good right now!
