As it turns out, I didn't have to wait until Thursday for those Mommy vibes to kick in again. From the moment I saw my little rugrats this evening, I felt compelled to smother them with hugs and kisses. Thankfully, there was very little whining and fighting amongst their ranks because I am a single parent tonight. ABM is having a boys' night out and hasn't returned yet. When he was working, I resented it whenever he went out even though he didn't do it that often. It doesn't bother me that much now, probably because I remember what is like to be the parent at home talking to children all day.
