We have left our children for a week. Honestly, they don’t seem phased…neither are we. Oh, we love our children terribly. We also recognize the value of rest and building us.

My sister actually did this last time she left her kids with me, so that’s where I stole the idea. She gave small gifts for every day on their time away. So, I headed to Michael’s and loaded up from, mostly, the dollar section. After coupons and discounts, I spent $20 so that the girls and their cousins could have a little touch of “Meaningful Mama” while we were away. Here’s what I included in the bags:
