Oh what a wonderful weekend. I feel like a new woman. Totally rejuvenated and recharged to enter back into mommy land. For three days I carried a purse instead of a diaper bag. I ate meals while they were hot with no interruptions, I had adult conversations with adults, and most importantly I bonded with some of my favorite girls on the planet. I met up with six of my friends from Charlottesville in DC for a weekend of shopping, eating out, movies, pedicures and late night laughs. WE started the girls trip tradition last year with the same group minus Stephanie who was in China plus Desiree and Danielle. This year Danielle is pregnant in California and Desiree couldn’t find babysitters in Florida.
So the weekend was beyond wonderful and then, to top it off, I came home to my amazing husband who had not only done a great job watching the boys, kept the house in much better condition than I excepted he would, and done it all with a good attitude……HE GOT LINCOLN OFF THE BOTTLE!!!! I was and am still flabbergasted. I don’t know how he did it and am not sure I want to find out. If it were up to me he’d probably have it until kindergarten. I’ve tried and failed and can’t deal with the crying. I am thrilled. Now I just have to go on a few more trips and let Ryan take care of the pacifier and blanket addiction and we’ll have ourselves a grown boy….which actually kind of saddens me. Thanks girls and husband for a fabulous weekend! Can’t wait till next year!
