Today Hunter spent the day out of the house without us! Heather (check out her blog here) has started running a bit of a dayhome for kids and Hunter hung out over there today as a favour returned. Last week I took Heather's two little girls for part of the day. Oh my gosh girls are so much different! Much less destructive, or perhaps they were just on their best behaviour when they were here.
Cavan and I were on our own from 10:30 this morning until almost 5 this evening. The house was so quiet! I would love to say that I was incredibly productive and cleaned the house from top to bottom, but that just isn't the case. Instead, I spent most of the day in my comfy reclining/rocking chair as I fed and rocked my sick baby. I went through a lot of season 3 of Heroes and reading of some blogs I was behind on.
Cavan enjoyed playing with Hunter's toys without being pushed over, but his face just lit up when he saw his big brother heading up the stairs. It was wonderful to be able to spend time with Cavan without being pulled in twenty other directions today. Usually by 5pm I am exhausted and Hunter has me at my wits end. Tonight I was greeted with a big hug and tales of fun at Heather's house.
I am now hoping that Hunter can head over there once a week or so. It is good for him to get some interaction with others without mom there, and it is just as good for Cavan to have some undivided attention from mom. Completely worth the money and my sanity!
