I don’t have time to feel guilty for getting time to myself and away from my familial chaos. I find that when i have time away from the boy genius, I am more sane when he wants me to sit and play an hour of Star Wars on the Wii or Star Wars on the XBOX or just a friendly game of chess *smiles*
My thought is that he is just about to turn 8, and I had better do what I can to stay healthy and in shape as I am going to be doing this for the next 16 years (you don’t see your kids leaving home for good at 18 do you?).
Now that I have confessed, there is one exercise that I would love to get to do more often by myself and that is bike ride. I have a rack on my VW that can hold two bikes but I can’t seem to get myself to believe that it is okay to leave the boy and his bike at home for these riding escapades.
To me, it is like going to see a children’s movie with no children.
I am most sure some of you know how I am feeling.
I have to work on that
