That is why they say stay busy . no fun love mixing things up with my family . They always say to find the balance right ?

I mean come on they are boys and when dad is deployed . I take over in that department and we are able to talk . We talking about girls, school, friends , new interest in there lives . I really want my kids to feel like they can tell me anything . Time is slowly passing by and when dads not here I take over .
Taking Care Of Yourself
In the end I can’t wait till the girls get old enough to teach them cats in the cradle , jump rope games from when I was there age . I learned that the kids actually enjoy me doing these things with them . Plus going outside and working up a sweat with them is fun to . breathing the fresh air and playing with what brings a smile to your face is exactly what you need when your fight the sadness. whatever brings you joy do something for yourself . It could be something simple like going to a movie by yourself,wine night with the ladies,change your hair color , clothing shopping . Have a babysitter on call or one of the housewives ,teenage kids watch the kids for a night off. Every mom,grandmother,father needs a break sometimes to . Get the kids some movies and a pizza night with a little something to drink for yourself that you enjoy . It will help you press the reset button and turn that frown upside down .
