Do parents ever really get to relax? If you’re like me, you spend your time running from one commitment to the next, juggling schedules just to keep your head above water, and wondering when your me-time will appear. Parental recreation is an important and necessary part of our lives, and should be scheduled as such.
My Siamese cats are inseparable. Each night, and often during the day, they cozy together at the end of our bed on a blanket they have claimed as their own. Both cream colored with different colored markings, it's often hard to see where one begins and the other ends. It struck me one early morning as I stumbled out of bed to make school lunches that the cats are more intimate than my husband and I. As if reading my thoughts, they stirred and instinctively began washing each other's faces, their tongues touching occasionally.
