I was reminded this weekend just how much I like spending alone time with my family. I'm talking, REAL alone time, when it's just the 4 of us. For me, this is the time when my boys are truly themselves. It's those quiet moments that no one gets to see but you that I truly cherish.
We spent a weekend in West Virginia at my best friends cabin. It was her and her likely soon to be fiance. They don't have kids, yet. Needless to to say they have only just begun to appreciate the noise and chaos that comes with kids. I can't wait until they can experience it first hand. I've forgotten what it's like to be a couple with no kids. I'm sure they went home exhausted and wondering if they would ever be up for the challenge, LOL!
It was during those quiet walks,swims in the river and throwing rocks when I wasn't worried about how they were behaving in front of other people that I love and make it all worth it. The bug bites, not so much.
