A Few Moments of Peace?

The wife and I left the boys in the hands of my parents today, and ran out to get some holiday shopping done.
We walked the stores without any whining about hurting feet or being bored. We shopped toy aisle and clothes racks without having to explain that “No, you dont need another toy right now…” or keep the big one from wandering off.
We drove all around without having to worry about a wet diaper or refilling juice cups.
We had a meal that didn’t require hiding silverware or scooping food from the restaurant floor.
We had a quiet, productive, restful day….

And it was weird. We couldn’t wait to get home.
