My parents just left after visiting for the Artist's 8th birthday. Right now I am missing my mom more than I have since the last time she came for a visit. I have great parents. My mom helps with housework and taking care of the kids and my dad spent the week working on my car and playing with the kids. I am so lucky to have my parents. I just wish they weren't so far away. Ever since I moved away they have made a point to visit for the Artist's birthday and any other time that they can.
Last night my 1 year old, the Tank, was sick. He's fine today, but it made for a late night and a LOT of laundry. Every time something like this happens, I understand my parents a little more. I am actually hoping I get sick before the baby girl, so that maybe she won't get sick (we nurse). I never thought I would hope to get sick. Moms don't get sick days, so I must be nuts, right?
But, back to my main point, I really miss my mom. I wish she was here for me, I could use a nap today and a little help with the house. I know I'll just suck it up and deal with it all, but it was so nice having help for a week.
