I can only think of two or three dozen places I'd rather be than at home, alone, with my kids all day.
Most of my days are pretty busy, crafts to do, books to read, errands to run and so forth. I write a little, think a lot, visit and plot and play. Somedays I feel energetic and tackle the laundry pile or get down to the bottom of the dirty dish sink. Sometimes I host elaborate royal receptions, complete with fanciful if not entirely historically accurate costumery.
And when all else fails, I grab a pillow and play Whac-A-Mole with the children while they jump on the bed.
How do you get through the down days?
