Ten things I miss about having all the teens gone this week…

To be fair, I hope they know we do miss certain things…

10. Garbage taken to the curb on trash day…

9. Chauffeurs for the younger McGs

8. Music practices from morning to night…though Mary certainly is quite good…

7. Filching candy from Patrick’s desk…ha…

6. Meg making cookies…and boys eating them as fast as they cool…

5.  Big boys roughhousing with the little boys…

4. Long evening talks with my personal writing consultant…

3. Joe’s witty comebacks…

2. Pete slipping in a load of laundry before he goes to bed each night…

1.  People who like my cooking and eat it up…

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.
