I jokingly mentioned to Hannah today that it would be nice if I could have the day off from my mom jobs. You know, wiping butts, making breakfast, fetching juice, unloading the dishwasher, taxiing to school, making dinner. Mom jobs. She said ‘Mooooom, you can’t have a day off when Daddy isn’t here! Who would take me to school?!’ I said ‘but I’m tired, your brother didn’t sleep last night and I just want a mom vacation day.’

First I’d have a nap. A long one.
Then I’d sit in the bath with a book and a coffee.
Afterwards, a nice meal – something with hollandaise and bacon maybe?
If I felt up to it, maybe I’d take a long, leisurely walk outside and listen to the birds (it would be warm, no snow.)
Maybe I’d sit on a bench for a while and just watch the world go by.

Home again, I’d settle in with a snuggly blanket and a movie. I still love fairy tales. The cats would crawl up on my lap and purr and I’d watch in silence, listening to every word on screen.
What would your day off look like? Have you ever taken a day off just for you? I wonder if anyone ever does. Seems like it would be lovely!
