When I was in Melbourne, my husband took a week off work to look after our boys. I was terrified that they would drive him crazy, particularly because it was THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS that week.
So before I left, I arranged a series of playdates, babysitting, park dates, and sleepovers.
They were so busy, they hardly noticed I was gone! It was a breeze! Everyone had such a great time! The boys were wonderful! And my husband actually enjoyed himself.
I was so pleased, in fact, I was glowing with pride.
I came back to a relaxed and happy household – and it felt so good. OK the house was in a mess, but I didn’t care.
I must admit, even though I had a fantastic time in Melbourne, doing all the stuff I love – deep down I had a huge hole in my being.
Life was not the same without my husband and my two little monkeys.
