Mama Needs A Break

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.

I got the biggest kick out of seeing your picture under Mommy's Sippy Cup! That's my daughter's sippy cup, too! hahahaha And what a beautiful baby! Yes, mama's need a break. That's just the way it is. Happy SITS day!

Jen @ After The Alter said...

Happy SITS day! Looks like a really great sippy cup you have! Someday I think it will be mine too! Enjoy your day!

Vivianne said...

Happy Sits day! Your baby is adorable.

tickledpinktwice said...

Happy SITS Day! I'm sure glad that I'm not the only one that is excited to hear the garage door open. Love the kids but a break is so nice. Sadly, I'm excited to grocery shop alone. Look forward to stalking your blog some more!

Jeannie, Jane, Angel, Mommy, etc.. said...

Happy SITS! I LOVE your profile pic. It is just too cute.

Jenn said...

Happy SITS Day!

Writer Mommy said...

Every Mommy definitely needs a break once in a while. I have a 15 month old daughter and a son who is almost 3. Getting out of the house during the winter is almost impossible. Things like trips to the grocery store help refresh me and help me remember I am a grown-up.

Sherry said...

Kids are the greatest joy in life! Your child is adorable. I have 3 boys 17,15, and 4. We had 3 miscarriages, that is why the big age spread. Treasure the sweet times. They grow out of sweet, too soon. Teenagers, well that is a whole other comment box! But, mine are good. No troubles, and honor roll. I really shouldn't ever pick on them but I do. Their teenagers!LOL
Oh, I have one of those sippy cups I pull out about once a month too;)

What a beautiful boy! I know how you feel. It's like you can't wait to get out the door, into a silent car, out ALONE. And then about 20 minutes later, you can't wait to see them again. Such a cycle :)

Rachael@Tutus and Tantrumns said...

Happy SITS day! I can so relate, I love to get out of the house every once in a while, all by myself, and once I do...I can't wait to get home! I always miss my babies!

Oh, and the whole drive through shopping thing I've been saying for ever...I'll settle for a drive through Starbucks around here (they don't have any) but if you get really desperate, Safeway delivers groceries!

This Mama Works It! said...

Louise said...

Happy SITS day! What a lovely picture you posted on Wednesday! And I must tell you I remember when I first got to go out alone after three years (two kids back-to-back) - shopping one Saturday morning. I couldn't see anything in the shops except all the gorgeous little kids (and being in Italy you make a big fuss of every kid you see) - I was almost weeping with loneliness as I boarded the bus home!

CaneWife said...

Happy SITS Day! I'm so glad you got a little break. And a glass of wine! :) What a beautiful little guy you have!

Stephanie Faris said...

Your husband sounds awesome...and your little one is adorable. I think everyone seems to go through those feelings. I've heard it over and over from friends and family.

Hope you have a great SITS day!

Mrsbear said...

Congrats on the SITS day!

No matter how cute the kid (and yours is too adorable for words) we all need a break from them on occasion. You also appreciate them more when (if) you come back. ;)

Hearing the garage door opening is the best sound for both my daughters and me! They run to the door to see Daddy, and I really need a break by the time he comes home, even if it's just to make dinner without the girls under my feet!

Crafty Girls Workshop said...

Your little monkey is adorable! It's good that you missed him, and I'm sure he missed you too. But you need a break every once in awhile just to keep your sanity. How awesome that your hubby could sense that vibe and read your mind. Sweet! Happy SITS featured blogger day! Enjoy your day in the sun.

jaz@octoberfarm said...

i had my kids 15 months a part. it was almost like having twins. i needed my sippy cup a lot. have a great sits day!

Helen said...

Beautiful blog, beautiful little monkey... and that's a pretty nice sippy cup there, too! lol

Happy SITSday!

By the way, did you know that a brand called Lolita makes wine, martini, shot, and beer glasses... and one of them is called, "Mama's (or Mom's) Sippy Cup"? It's very cute and each glass has a little recipe on the bottom, but for this one, the directions are to fill it all the way with any wine available!

Too cute not to share :)
Have a great day!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Happy SITS Day! It is nice to get a break, but I do the same thing - anxious to get home again. ;) Love your sippy cup - I have one of those, too. ;)

Happy sits day :-) I am your newest follower!

I agree with you on a few points. I would love to go to culinary school but only so that I could cook awesome grub for my own family. And I, too, am becoming my mother...and I love it. She is my best friend.

Your baby is beautiful and so is your blog!

Shanna - My Favorite Everything said...

Love the sippy cup! And definitely give yourself the breaks!! Happy SITS day!

CandyM said...

Ur little guy is so cute!! I completely agree with u and always say the same thing myself - there needs to be a mommy section of town where everything is drive thru!! healthy restaurants, a little mini drive thru target, a mini drive thru grocery store! Some moms need to collaborate and make this happen! congrats on ur SITs day!

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

Happy SIts day girl!! I was just here visiting you the other day so I was so excited it was Your day woot woot. and great post I hope today I actually get a mommy break to go to the craft store and get some supplies :)

I am stopping in from SITS. I love your blog and totally understand your post. I have not spent more than 4 hours away from my son since he was born. he is 2.5 years old now. I need a break! I can't wait to read more and browse around on your blog. have a wonderful day!

I knew by your title that Mommy's sippy cup was going to be a glass of wine, what else would it be? ;)

Happy SITS day!

Happy SITS day! Your little one is such a cutie. I especially love the picture in your Wordless Wednesday post.

Glad you got a break. We all need one once in a while.

Acting Balanced Mom said...

So glad you got your break! Happy SiTS Day... you know that even 15 minutes of a walk was sometimes enough recharging of the battery me time for me to get back in there in a better frame of mind... glad your hubby is as sweet as mine and gives you the chance to get out for breaks!

Feeling Fit With Dana said...

your baby is adorable! I am glad that you were able to get away for a while and know that you are not alone in wanting to call and check the moment you walk away. It doesn't get any easier, sorry to say! Congrats on being the FB today!!! enjoy it!

I have 2 under 2, with my oldest barely walking. I hate going to the store for just milk.

Happy SITS day! Davis is so cute... it's hard to believe you'd need a break from that, but I think I remember needing them too... I still need them, but now our girlies have their own social lives and I don't really need to make a plan before I go somewhere.

mommaof4wife2r said...

not sure he could be any stinking cuter! i have 4 girlies...and i want a little dude so bad, but i'm guessing it's a no from hubs. anyway, happy SITS day! love your background...and your "mommy juice" as i call it. love the "mommy's sippy" good call!

Two Normal Moms said...

Happy SITS Day!
Does that wine glass actually say Mommy's Sippy Cup on it? Because I got one of those for Christmas and I love it!
You're blog is sweet and so is that darling little boy! Don't ever feel bad for needing and taking a break. And being glad to get back home is all part of the fun!

lifewithsweetpeaches said...

Happy SITS day!

I love my sippy cup, too...the best is when I have to use it before my husband even gets home! :) I had to open a bottle of wine last night for a recipe, and I thought, "Well, it's already open..."

Can't wait to read more of your blog! I'm a new mommy, too - my daughter is about the same age as your son, so it will be fun to follow along.

Jesslyn said...

Happy SITS day! Hope you get lots of comment love. You have a lovely blog and that boy of yours is adorable. Coming from such beautiful parents I'm not surprised.

Sarah and the Gentlemen said...

Happy SITS day!

Just wait until you get a whole NIGHT away. Yep, that first night is definitely NOT relaxing. It's more like separation therapy.

Emma said...

Happy SITS day! Gorgeous baby, and I love your profile pic!

TornadoTwos said...

Oh my gosh, your pic under your blog title cracked me up! Congrats on your SITS day. Your little guy is such a cutie. And as a mommy of 5, I know all too well how few and far between those nights out are, yet we cannot help but miss our kiddos when we finally get one. It's the mommy's curse.

Insanitykim said...

Your blog banner cracks.me.up.

Yes, there is a delicate balance of "me time" and not losing any precious moments with your children, but, you must have the "me time" to continue to be the best momma you can be, especially when your son starts asking you questions about his testicles and there is no wine in the house! Happy SITS day!

Zeemaid said...

I love your photos! they are just great! Your son is adorable by the way!!!!

Happy SITS day!

Katie said...

Happy SITS Day! Your baby is adorable!

karen@fitnessjourney said...

Congrats on your SITS day!

Your baby is absolutely adorable, such beautiful eyes! Even with all that cuteness, you still need a break from time to time. That adult time is a necessity. My baby is 15 so I get plenty of free time now, but I can remember how it felt to be alone with my two children all day and craving a little girl time. You'll be a much for effective mom if you are able to get a little you time.

Maggi said...

Cutest baby ever! Congrats on being in the spotlight! Enjoy your day!

Pricilla said...

Happy SITS Day.

Happy SITS Day! You are so right about mommys needing breaks. It's what keeps us great moms! For example, tonight I am going to have wine and dinner with a friend. We are both new moms and we felt the need for some time out. It just has to be done. :)

You are right. Baby steps. Now that my son is two and a half, I have no problem being away from him for a few days. Doesn't mean I don't like to call and talk to him and still wonder if all his needs are being met...but the urge to finish up a dinner date and go pick him up is no longer there!

I hope you have an awesome day as FB. Enjoy all the comment love!

Just jumped over here from SITS...LOVE your blog! I totally had the same 'garage door opening' experience last night. I was invited to a girls night at my friend's and my husband was at work late...wasn't sure if I'd make it. The garage door opening never sounded so fabulous!!

Gonna check your blog out...LOVE the photo of your little one...SO adorable!

HI!! Stopping by from SITS!

I love your profile picture. I too, am a first time mom (gave birth to my LO on October). I'm also tired and sleep deprived! Isn't motherhood amazing, though?

:D

I've done that, where Hubby hasn't even put his computer bag down, I'm already handing him the baby and heading out myself.

Corrie Howe said...

Happy SITS day. I love the name of your blog and I love the picture which goes with it.

I have the same sippy cup. Let me tell you a little secret, you'll be using yours long after they out grow theirs. ;-)
