I'm Free!!!

I'm free, I'm freeeeee! Today was a monumental day for me, as all of my children were in school! Folks, this has been the first time I haven't had to get a babysitter to go somewhere on my own! I took Dane into his preschool, got him situated and with a kiss and a hug I was out the door. I had a grin from ear to ear and was about to do a little dance and a sprint to my car but there were still parents out there. I didn't want them to come over to check my trunk for luggage. Maybe I feel slightly guilty, that maybe I should be pulling out the hanky cuz my little one is leaving my protective arms and moving on to the big time. Or maybe I don't. Yeah I don't. He's ready, I am ready. I drove into Target, got some birthday presents. I went to the grocery store. I went to the bookstore. I even went home for a little while to surf the net. All this in two and a half hours. I got to drive my car with the music blasting, no worrying about blowing little eardrums. I listened to whatever I wanted. What a good morning! Now I have figured I need to get a laptop so I can be one of those cool people in the coffee shops with no kids. Maybe I will start writing a book with all this free time. Oh the possibilities are endless.
Dane loved preschool and cant wait to go back. He chattered my ear off all the way home about his new friends and painting, and playing with Lego's and......well you get the picture.

Oh, I'm so glad the day went well and that you both enjoyed your "play" time.
