Young Kids

Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

I can remember when my kids were younger and our afternoons and evenings were always a madhouse trying to get each of them to their respective after-school activities, do homework, get dinner, baths, bedtime, etc. My husband usually got home from work in the middle of all this mayhem and sometimes I felt like he was just another “kid” making demands on my time. But as time moved on and the kids grew up and began to drive themselves to their activities, it was a little more pleasant to get to spend some time with my husband in the evenings. Of course, nothing lasts forever! His company was sold and they told him he had to start doing more travelling out of state. Since I only have one child left at home (a senior in high school), I’m finding myself spending more time at home alone. The evenings can get long—and scary—so my husband suggested I look at for a security system. I do feel better when I lock myself in at night but I sort of long for those afternoons when there was so much chaos and activity in the house.
