I Confess, Vacation Bible School is Great for a Mother's Soul

I confess....
I had a great week! And I really feel like I needed this week so I didn't have a nervous breakdown.

I confess....
My kids went to Vacation Bible School this week giving me two and a half kid free hours everyday! I hate to  admit this, but I really needed a break from them!

Who? Us? Never!

I confess....
I enrolled them in VBS since I loved it as a kid and I wanted them to experience it too. But who knew how good it would be for me?

I confess....
The kids had a great time, but I think I enjoyed the week more.

I confess....
I pampered myself a little this week. I got a pedicure and a haircut! I can't tell you the last time I was able to get a haircut without at least one kid there. I proved my loyalty to my previous hairdresser by sticking with him even after he quit working Saturdays making it almost impossible to go there alone.

I confess....
I also spent one morning reading and drinking coffee for two straight uninterrupted hours. The book worm in my was giddy with excitement.

I confess....
After getting the morning off I had more energy to deal with my kids in the afternoon. I liked that I was still able to be the fun mom even at the end of the day. Lately I'm dragging at the end of the day and counting the minutes to bed time.

I confess....
In just two months the kiddos go back to school and I'll have regular breaks two mornings a week.

I confess....
It will be nice getting that break and being able to do more work. It's getting harder and harder working at home with three kids who only take occasional naps these days.

I confess....
We are going blueberry picking tomorrow, I'm very excited about it. We went strawberry picking a few months ago, but this will be our time picking blueberries. I love watching my kids try something for the first time. And before we moved to NC, we didn't have these opportunities.

What are you confessing this week?

  1. Girl, I feel you. Last time I got this kind of break, I made myself drunk on library books. It felt so good rekindling my reading habit
