We shipped half the kids to camp and the other half to the grandparents which meant my husband and I had three (QUIET) days to ourselves. Guess what happened? We held a conversation that had 4 consecutive sentences! Really, uninterrupted, 4 of them! Then we just froze, neither of us sure how to proceed, like an English Language Learner that had used all the phrases they have memorized. We also ate a whole meal without getting up, at a restaurant even (there was a bread stick that had fallen on the floor under the table next to ours but I resisted cleaning it up!) Did you know there are all kinds of people who eat out that DON”T have children with them? I imagine it is happening in restaurants around the world!
We had a nice mini-vacation. Bring on the noise!!
