When the bigger boys are away...

the Chairman is lonely. I've been so informed. When you're the fourth in line, the third to his relevant experience, having always had someone to entertain him, being the only has its downside. His two older brothers are living the camping life with their Boy Scout troop and will not be back until the weekend.

In the effort to dispense some undivided attention, which would be the upside for this lonely only, he has helped me plan each  day with a particular "fun" thing to do to keep the lonelies away. Sunday featured jellytelly.com computer games with Mom and Dad. Monday had a playdate with movie and popcorn. Tuesday highlights were blueberry picking and blueberry eating plus an afternoon pool party.

Wednesday...whew! Mom is tired. Apparently it is easier to keep up with three than with one.

I know from Husband's report that the bigger guys are having the time of their camping life, and I am certainly grateful they are getting this experience. But for the record, I miss the bigger boys too. Guess the Chairman and I will just have to soothe our loneliness with ice cream.

Probably on Wednesday.


  1. My youngest enjoys being the lonely only...I think because he likes his alone time in general!

  2. Mmmmmmm. Enjoy the precious time with lonely one and of course, the ice cream!!
