While Sam was gone I tried to keep the kids really active and busy. They didn't ask about Daddy as much and it kept my mind off missing him. Although while I was at the mall with both kids by myself, it made me miss him more. Sam is such a big help with the kids and you don't realize that till you do it on your own! We went to the mall in Merrillville. They have "The Children s Place" (my favorite store) and an inside play place. They had a great time, and they both went to bed early. Not cause I put them to bed, but neither one of them could keep their eyes open. I was in bed sleeping before 9:30 that night to! It wore us ALL out! This is the BEST thing I have seen in a long time! They are new too, so I was very gratefully surprised!!
