As much as I am looking forward to getting away from my family for a few days and having “me” time there is one thing that breaks my heart when I’m gone. My girls usually can’t be bothered to talk to me on the phone. It’s not that they don’t miss me (or maybe they don’t) but at 3 and 5 talking on the phone doesn’t rank high on their priority list.
To let the girls know that I am thinking of them even while I’m away I bought a few things while I was at Target today:
Nothing expensive- everything but the t-shirts came from the Dollar Spot (and the t’s were only $3.99). Hair ties, headbands, gummy fruit, socks, hair brushes… All the things my girls like. I’ve got them bagged and ready for Doug to give them one for each day I’m gone.
Maybe they’ll at least get on the phone to say thank you.
Do you do anything special for your children while you are away?
