Well I finally was able to head back to my hometown to visit with my parents, family and friends. I love going home but I do not always enjoy the trip and adventure that comes with traveling with 3 boys down I-95, then I-20 during the hot months. Guess what though....... It went well!
Actually better than I could have ever imagine. It really shows how much my boys have grown and mature . I can remember when we lived in NC just about 4 hours away from my hometown, that trip would take us almost 6 hours due to the constant things children throw out at you when you are traveling. I am sure you know what I mean. Most moms have been there before.....Are we there yet?, How many more minutes, I need to use the bathroom, I am hungry, he's touching me, MOM tell him to stop, I dropped my book or toy or WHATEVER. The list could go on and on.
This trip however was pleasant... they laughed, they sang, played trivia and they talked.Not just with each other but with me too. We had our quiet moments also like when they read or played their DSi's. It was a wonderful moment for me. Great satisfaction washed over me realizing we had moved to another aspect in our lives and gave me a glimmer of hope of what is to come in the future with my three boys.
I hope you enjoy your family this week as much I plan on enjoying my family! :-)
