Grrr. Being far from family makes it hard to do stupid little things, like nip to the bank, or shop or hairdresser. Basically we have to do everything with the kids--from selling houses, buying houses, painting, Do-It-Yourself, writing, even going to the bathroom involves a threesome. Now I LOVE my children and I love my families, but sometimes I wish we were all closer.
DH is great, a real hands-on dad who takes time with his children, but I miss the casual way you can entrust your family with your most precious possessions and nip out for a bit of a break.
This isn't a moany post--this is a be grateful for what you have post--as I see so many people take this support for granted. Family can be a pain, it can be an obligation you don't want, but really family is a blessing and you should take a moment to appreciate it!!!
I love you family--even though you are too far away to babysit LOL!!!!
