Ten things I like about having all teens out of the house

Every last one of my older kids are off doing something cool, some even in different states. So, this is how the other half lives, with only three sweet kids hanging around the casa…

10.  Mt. Laundry is a shorter hill.

9. Fewer dirty dishes orphaned in the TV room.

8. Daily calendar has fewer last minute surprises.

7. All present are in bed before 11 pm.

6. There’s actually leftovers from dinner. (wow.)

5. Daughter learned how to mow the lawn! (Girl power!)

4. Sleeping in until 7:30 am because no one has to be chauffered ANYWHERE.

3. House is actually cleaner. Really. So who is making those messes?

2. Less testosterone fueled conversations on military history at the dinner table…

1. Three quarts of milk lasted us three whole days!!

No, really, guys, we miss you. We just wanted you to know that we NOTICED you were gone. See you at the end fo the week!


About Kristen West Mcguire

I'm a wife and mom. Sometimes I work, and sometimes I homeschool and sometimes I just meddle, Although I worked at a military chapel for a few years and even taught CCD, most of my life I have been just a pew-sitting, kid-shushing Catholic mom. Since my conversion in 1992, I've been propositioned to join Opus Dei, Regnum Christi, the Neocatechumenal Way, Cum Christo (at least I think that is what Ultreya meant), and at least a few third orders, I just don't go for that extra stuff. I'm a Plain Jane Catholic.

    11. The internet is faster when the teens are away — Minecraft sucks a lot of bandwidth!
