Raising a kid is part joy and part guerrilla warfare
This weekend was a break. A little break from real life.
From scheduling play dates, changing diapers, meal planning, tantrums and night time feedings.
But it was also a break from my monster.
Late night snuggles, giggles, kisses, and reading stories.
I really hadn't anticipated missing my boys so much. Sounds a tad harsh, but I mean it in the sweetest way.
But seriously, it took me by surprise.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't as I was sobbing in my mojito wishing Max was climbing all over me. But I missed my family.
Does that make sense?
I kept seeing lil kids playing in the pool, splashing around. I kept trying to guess their age. I may have also walked into more than one toy store looking for something special for my monster.
Over all though, it was a must needed, much appreciated break. I look forward to more in the future. I think it is important to take breaks. To just relax, refocus and recharge.
It does a mind/body/soul good!
