First of all, I want to say that I am so, so very excited because I am featured blogger at SITS! For all of you that know what this site is, you know it's awesome! For those of you that don't, you should go check it out! So take a look around. Grab a cup of joe. Stay for a while! And of course, thanks for stopping by! :)
Just like any other mom out there, we absolutely love and adore our children and of course would do anything under the sun for them, but sometimes we just need a break! Of course, if I could, my break would be a long weekend in an extended stay spa, but who am I kidding! The thought is nice, anyway. I very rarely get to get out of the house by myself. We all know how hard it can be dragging the car seat in and out of the car to get where we are going. Especially if it's just to go to the grocery store to get one item. Hasn't anyone thought of drive through stores yet? Well, tonight, I finally got a small and well deserved break. Davis has been doing pretty well lately. His four hour schedule is working out well, but man, when that boy is upset, he sure lets me know! My best friend had wanted me to come meet her for a glass of wine tonight and the thought sounded oh so nice! I seriously didn't know if I was going to be able to make it at first, on the count of Davis. Michael's schedule is still absolutely nuts and I didn't exactly feel like taking Davis to the restaurant with me. I was feeding him his cereal and a five o'clock alarm starts siring in my ears. What is wrong with this kid!? I can't shovel the food in his mouth fast enough for him to eat! If there was an automatic spoon that fed him, I would buy it. Right in the middle of him eating, and me trying to get him to calm down, the most wonderful noise flooded through my ears. The garage door was opening! Yes! Michael was home! I did feel pretty bad that right when he walked through the door, he was greeted by a screaming baby and me wanting to rip my hair out. He just looked at me and said, "Go on. Get out of here. You need a break." No arguments here! I'll take it and run! Ahhh....time to myself. But what was so weird was I was actually ready to get home. Part of me was sitting there thinking how nice this is. Finally a break. Finally time alone to myself and not have to worry about diaper changes for a few hours. And then the other part of me was thinking how I couldn't wait to see him when he woke up and I could bathe him when I got home. I was also wondering if I should call and make sure he had finally calmed down, but I decided against that one. Maybe it's baby steps. I did get to enjoy myself for a few glasses of wine out with my friend...and still home in time to bathe my little monkey.
