Having girl time away from the husband and kid.
I love my family. Obviously. I love being a wife and a mom. I wouldn't trade either of those roles for absolutely anything in the world.
There are times though when I just want to be me.
I want to make funny comments, have a good conversation and laugh my inappropriately loud laugh.
Sometimes I want to be more than just the milk lady or butt wiper or personal chef and house cleaner.
Sometimes I just want to remember what it's like to be Laura.
Lately, I've been making sure I have a little more "Laura" time in my life and I like it.
You know what else is awesome?
Coming home and seeing your kid run to the backdoor in anticipation of your arrival.
Hearing him happily scream "Mama! Mama!" while excitedly banging on the glass.
Walking into a house that smells like freshly made dinner.
Getting a kiss from my husband and watching my kid run happy circles around the house.
