This weekend I hit a mom milestone by dropping the kids off
at grandma and grandpa’s house for a weekend alone with
my husband. This was the first time we had ever left the 1
year old overnight with anyone. I was not too heartbroken
about leaving the kids. Ok, I will admit I got teary eyed one
time… but it was short lived.
The glory of eating at a restaurant sans children was worth it.
No one threw food on the floor or tried to escape the high
chair. I was able to go to Ulta and actually browse through
ALL the makeup aisles without a toddler playing in the face
powder or lip sticks. I went clothes shopping and was able to
try things on in peace. No one ran amok, tried to escape the
fitting room or hid in the clothing racks. It was, dare I say,
EASY and RELAXING!
Since we got a hotel room I had the privilege of sleeping in till
11 o clock!! I did not even think that was possible. I’ll use the
word again… it was GLORIOUS! Of course come Sunday I
was getting a little anxious to see the kids, we both were. It
was definitely nice to get time to recharge though. I’m already
counting down the months till we get to drop them off again!
