First Night Home As Summer Mama

Finals are exhausting. Maybe it is the end of the year that is exhausting....or we is the rest of the year that is exhausting! School would be somewhat better if my mind was more like computer memory, but even then, just the number of hours spent at work and school would be draining. Now I can finally slow down, take a breath, and regenerate with my family for the summer. I am very happy about all of that, but it is such an unfamiliar feeling - like I should be doing something that I am not. It takes a while to gear down, I guess. Granted, I have been free for less than 24 hours.

I went home and we had a nice evening yesterday, which was my first day home for dinner on what would normally be a school night. I made tacos, since Boy Wonder had been begging Wife for them earlier in the week. She doesn't cook tacos, so her answer had been no. I personally am thrilled that my boy likes Mexican food. One of our first signs that Wife was pregant (the first time - with Boy Wonder) was that she had a craving for Mexican food. That NEVER happens. I knew that had to be MY BABY causing that craving :) Anyway, we ate tacos, played outside, did baths and bedtime stories....a good night.

Isn't it funny how little things like "mexican food" can define? Have fun Summer Mama! I know the kids are over the moon to have you home more. (Casey too)

Ahhh. You can wind down now, and I'm with you and Wonder Boy ... tacos are great "wind down" food. Or party food. Or everyday food. Yeah, I love Mexican food, too!

Happy Mother's Day, Dakota!
