Wife Gets Back in ... 1 hour!

So it looks like we survived the two weeks with out the Mommy.

The house is still standing.
The kids have been well fed.
Bathed.
Cleaned.
And still having fun.

Today was a looooong day with Ping though.  Wow.  Fights, calling her sister names, stomping feet, growling, etc.  Good stuff.  The wife can't get here soon enough!  And for tomorrow?  I'm going to let the children catch up with their mother.  :-)

Thanks to Marg and Nancy who sent over food.  I would have felt offended, as if you thought that I could not handle two weeks being alone with 4 children, but as it turns out, I really did need the food... and sometimes, pride has to take a back seat to exhaustion.

So, to all the Moms out there - good on ya!  We love you and everything that you do, that we all take for granted.  For being the 1st line of defense (or offensive) in dealing with the children, to being the last one to sit down at the dinner table.  You rock.

There, now, between this post and surviving the two weeks with the kids, I'm taking myself to Cancun for 5 days and 4 nights... and NOT feel guilty.  :-)
