It was so nice to "be on strike" and just take some time for me without having to actually leave! Last Saturday night I stayed in my room all evening and guess what the boys fed themselves for supper--Ice cream, chips and some other junk food. They did follow through with their usual bedtime routine. It just happened to be over an hour after their normal bedtime! BUT, hey, I was happy they were dealing with it. I think they were even happier to have mom back Sunday afternoon!
I must say that getting ready for church and getting out the door Sunday morning (all by myself) was quite nice! I also need to add that the boys have been really good this week... I wouldn't say perfect but much better!
