Free Time

Ah ha! At last. After an extended holiday weeked I finally have the computer all to myself. I can wile away the hours doing nothing but - huh? What's that baby? You need some more chocolate milk? Okay, hang on....

As I was saying. There are hours to be spent doing nothing but what silly little things come to - yes baby? You have a poopy diaper? Oh all right. Let's go change you....

Where was I? Oh yes. I can do anything I'd like to on here, what ever silly little idea that pops in my head like play on Facebook, or watch some really old episodes of Gilligan's Island or - yes my sweet girl? You need a blankie? Well we just happen to have one right here....

All right. Uh...oh yeah. I can watch some fun old shows or look up little crochet ideas or - yes little one?! You've lost your milk? Hmph (patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue)! All right, let's go look....

Wow. Okay. I can watch episodes of old shows or...or...(not going to interrupt me?) or look up ideas or write a bit on my sto- (IlovemydaughterIlovemydaughterIlovemydaughter) Yes? What do you need now?! You want to get dressed? Seriously? Let's go pick out some clothes....

....

....

(In a whisper) So I could write some more on my story or-

What do you want now?!?!?!?!?!

Oh.

I love you too sweetheart....

Hmm. Gotta go. I have a chance to cuddle with my daughter.

It's so hard to remember to do the little things with so many aspects of life get in the way. Seriously. I have so much work to do and so little time to do it in, but now that Allison has gone off to school, I'm realizing how little time I have with them when they're little. Makes me wish I had done more with her...cuddled more, read more, but then...I need ME time, too. If nothing else but to be a good mom later.

The average toddler needs something from you every 20 seconds. That's 3 times a minute. No wonder we get grey hairs!

But that being said, they are only little for such a little while. :)
