I hope I'm not being a bad mommy...

There are many things I must do today. But Katie is having a nap. Roper is home, (vacuuming the basement, actually.) The sun is shining. And I am going out for a while. I'm not sure where I'm going or what I am going to do, but I need to get out and not be in charge of anything but me.

Please listen, as this is important. You are, without question, being a good mommy. Why? Because mommies and daddies are human beings, and have limits. You must make a habit of setting aside time for yourself, so you can recharge. That's what makes it possible to deal with everything the rest of the time.

No guilt. None. Nothing to be guilty about.

Exactly what he said. I hope you had fun.

Put another way, did you think Roper was being a bad Daddy when he went to England in February?

Heh.

Gretchen and I were plotting on the way to and from Gafilk. Plotting to go to England or Germany without the kids or husbands :-)

I suspect it'll be at least 2010 before that happens, with the stage both families are at.

Yay! I look forward to seeing you both, come the day.

Maybe one day we ought to plot a Momcon - somewhere East Coast-y and encourage as many fannish Moms as possible to attend sans kids and husbands :-) Somewhere with a swimming pool and a hot tub...

Now that is a wonderful idea!

now we just need to wait for Roper and Glasser child twos to both be old enough for us to do this (and neither of you to move on to child threes) and we can check finances and do it. Remind me! Our finances may even be robust enough for me to manage it by the time babyroper2 is a year or two old :-)

There will be no three for us. No more embryos in the freezer.
I really like the MommyCon idea.
Let's see what we can do...

We have Taken Measures to ensure that we are stopping with the two we have :-)

Grin. It is my firm belief that two is the right number as I have two hands and thus can cope with that many.
