So i've had the opportunity to leave K for a few days here and there over the past year. It's weird to think that for the first 2 1/2 years of his life, he was with me every day. The first time i left him was so hard. But i'm getting better. Plus it allows for K and Jeff to have quality daddy time, which is equally important as mommy-time!
So back in April, i left for a girls weekend. I came back home feeling totally rested and rejuvenated. It...was...awsome! And so necessary. I'm thinking a yearly girls trip is required for all mommas.
So while I was away, Jeff took K out on big brother's old scooter.
This past month, i've been in Washington DC as part of our summer scholars program. So it's 2 1/2 weeks without my bubba (and 4 weeks without the hubby - thanks to Grammy (my mom) she's coming to DC next week with K for the last week and a half that i am here). It's been good - i've gotten lots of work done and had some me time without feeling too guilty about it, plus K has been able to have some quality daddy bonding time without too many meltdowns about missing mommy.
And what do Daddy's do when mommy's not home....i can't help but think about that Brady Bunch episode here...."Mom always said don't play ball in the house"!
