So what does the recipe of a day at home with no Dad around and kids not used to being home all day look like?
1 5 year old used to a full day at daycare
1 teen transplanted from our old town where his friends are
1 husband who travels weekly
1 brand new house
1 new town
1 Mommy who used to work 40 hours a week
Mix all together and let simmer for about 4 weeks.
A 5 year old will be better entertained...once Kindergarten begins, a teen who will be just fine....once school starts. a husband who will get early, home-cooked meals... only 1-2 days a week, a house that is unpacked.....found all the stash spots for to-do-someday projects, a town that has seen a long boarding teen dodging traffic & a 5 year old enter stores in his cape and carrying his Thor hammer everywhere....because I allow my kids to just be weird, and a Mommy who will get more organized...tomorrow!
OK. So God answered my prayers, but deleted my husband from the daily routine. But above is the best and most amazing recipe I have ever created and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world! But, now I must go iron someone's work pants I let sit in the dryer too long. Dang it!!!
