Nora and I get a few hours to ourselves each weekday morning, while the kids are at school. Jane gets out of kindergarten a little after 11 so it's not quite 3 hours, but close. Once the kids are at school we'll clean for awhile and some mornings we'll prep dinner. I love our mornings because we can usually get a lot done and it's nice to have some time with just Nora, as we cook and clean together (and play barbies once we're done cleaning :)). Once cleaning is done, several mornings a week we have other things going on: Tuesday is Zumba (It's at a church and the kids sit on the side and play while the moms exercise), Wednesday we'll make a grocery run, Thursdays we have playgroup, and sometimes we'll get together with a couple of girls from the neighborhood that are the same age. Here she is with her friends Catherine and Evie.
