Missing something(s)

My girls spent the night with Grandma/Granddad and 4 Aunts & Uncles tonight. They could not be happier.

I got to drive home in a quiet car with my husband and stop at Yogurtland without having to buy my kids yogurt with gummy bears on it. When we got home, I was able to get out of the van without the kids "hiding", or fighting over something, or screaming on the way in.

All of these things were great.

But when I walked by their rooms and saw them empty.... I too was empty. A break from kids is always so nice. I enjoy the peace and quiet. But I also realize the emptiness when they aren't around...they complete me.

Colin's my completeness too however, I would see a bed that didn't need to be made, meals that don't have to cooked, a bath that got skipped, no Disney Channel noise, and a moment of quiet with JD.
