Would I sound like a terrible person if I said that I don't miss my kids when they're not with me?
I've been having some serious mommy guilt since last weekend..
We spent the weekend with a loved one in the hospital. We had to leave the girls early Saturday afternoon and we didn't get home until early Sunday evening. (It wasn't like it was 2 weeks)
As we were starting our day on Sunday morning, Peter looked at me and said "I'm really missing the girls".....
I didn't respond...
I sat there thinking "REALLY?!!"
Is that horrible?
I really didn't miss them..
I knew that they were in very good hands, they were safe, and healthy, and probably having more fun than they would be having if we were home with them..
Me.. I was peaceful.
Yes, I was in a hospital with someone who is very close to me that is very sick, but I was peaceful.
I wasn't chasing anyone. I wasn't yelling. I wasn't listening to my name being screamed every 2 seconds. I wasn't wiping noses, or bums.I peed by myself, My coffee was still hot as I drank it, and I read a WHOLE magazine in one sitting.....
I was peaceful....I wasn't missing the girls..
And then SUPER DAD goes and ruins it by saying that he misses them..
I felt bad, so I tried to miss them, but I couldn't.
I was enjoying my time away, even if I wasn't in the most ideal place or situation..and yes, if given the choice, I would much rather be with the girls. I didn't have a choice though, and I didn't miss them.
Does that make me horrible??
