Life with no kid

It seems to involve movies, DVDs and junk food. About 90% of my day-to-day energy seems to be generally consumed by attempting to not be a bad role model to the junior. While he is away I have kind of, um, relaxed a bit.

Not sure if the stress involved in trying to be good is worse for the kid than the high levels of exposure to junk food and laziness would be if I gave up trying to be good.

Let's just say I may have eaten apple pie for breakfast, and I'll leave the maths up to you all.

The Noodle, on the other hand, has been quite busy up there in Queensland. Apparently.

Even the best of us need to relax a bit sometimes.

We do the same thing when our kids are away! Cereal for dinner, trips to Burger King. It's like we regress to teenagerhood or something.

Restrictions on chocolate to the point of strict abstinence in my childhood have rendered me an occasionally helpless chocaholic. Limited exposure in moderation to the young will hopefully see any indulgent substances as enjoyable but not insanely exciting.
