What do you do when your kids aren't there?

My children are at their grandparents for a few hours to give me a wincy break so I thought wahoo I'm going to go wild. So far I've... sat here, been on cafemom and sat here some more. I keep thinking... Oh no I need to move, but I don't. It's so odd... However I just realised I've forgotten lunch so I rang my friend and now I can sit here with a good old KFC (once it gets here) without the kids nagging me for some or telling me that their friends have fast food sooo much more than they do.

What about you?

I have a feeling I'm incredibly boring! I'm just enjoying being able to hear the TV!

  • When my parents take my daughter for the week or weekend, I tend to watch TV shows I missed, but basically I clean the house. I know sounds boring, but it's the best time that I can do it and not have any distractions from my 7 year old.

  • Usually I have atleast one. While my daughter is at pre school for 3 hours on MWF I still have my son, but he will nap for about an hour out of that time. I talk DH into taking them on outings just the 3 of them sometimes and I sleep or just sit watching TV. It is awesome! lol

  • My daughter spends the night at grandmas every Friday night and I do absolutely NOTHING when she is there. I sit here either on the computer, watch movies I might not get to, sleep, make junk food, sleep more lol. I dont feel bad about it. I am always going 100 mph during the week.

  • Sometimes just being boring is what you need relax be on Cafe moms without interruptions. If I thought I would go wild on the cleaning and getting rid of stuff but usually we go out and eat and then to a movie

  • The first time I didnt have my daughter I cried all night.. LOL. It was the first night since she was born that I was away from her (3yrs old) she didnt even want to come home because she has so much fun with grandma!!. The second time I was alone I went to the mall and just relaxed.
