Charis is visiting grandparents for the next 12 days. Next week, she'll be attending Vacation Bible School. Why am I not with her? I have jury duty. Unfortunately, Maryland does not grant nursing mothers an exemption due to breastfeeding.
One of the first places Justin and I shopped, after leaving Charis with Granny and Grandad, was Target! It's MUCH more peaceful shopping without an almost five year old. "Can I get yogurt? Can I get goldfish? Do we need to get Justin onesies?" Less questions were asked, and I could shop in peace.
...But at the same time, I still miss her.
