Do You Hear What I Hear?

SSSHHHHH!!!

Do you hear that?????

Really listen...... well? Do you hear it?

Me either!

It is The Sound of Silence! My boys have been gone since Tuesday in PEI and is it ever quiet. They called the first day, twice, but we haven't heard from them since! We went out for supper yesterday. You know that feeling you have when you think you are forgetting something? I had that feeling leaving the restaurant. I literally held out my hand expecting a smaller one to grab it, but no one was there. I wasn't carrying someones hat or restaurant toy, I wasn't breaking up any squabbles. It was strange. After shaking it off, I grabbed and held my husband's hand. It felt strange to hold a hand bigger than mine, but nice at the same time. We got home and popped in a DVD and just relaxed. No bedtime routine, no crying, no fighting.....no little hugs or slobbery kisses, no sweet little prayers, no snuggles and giggles...sigh. When are they coming back?

They will be back on Sunday but they are having such a ball! Our friends were kind enough to send us a few pics of their first day there and I'd like to share them with you (tip: you can click on the pictures to see them full screen size):












Doesn't it look like they are having a blast? I wish I was there too! We are planning a trip over next month so I won't have to wait long. I miss my babies but I am proud if their independence too! See you soon my little men!

Awww...what a great post. I loved reading about you grabbing your hubby's hand and noticing it was bigger than yours. Can you believe that one day, all their little hands will be bigger than yours!
It sounds like you've had just enough of a break and are ready to be AWESOME MOMMY again! I know how much even a 2 hr break recharges me. You're so blessed to have great friends to watch the boys for you...and give them a good time at the same time! I loved the pics! They are going into my screensaver slideshow :)

Cute post! Silence is so wonderful yet at the same time it feels like some thing is missing.
