And I am ok with it.
(First off - I avoid all those CRAZY-ASS SHOPPERS out there!!!)
said this before, but I really believe my time away from my kids helps me be a better mother - more patient, especially!
I was recently reading an older blog post where the author from ByTheBrooke said about the same:
And here's some more photo dumpage to slowly get us caught up:
We spent a weekend down the shore, enjoying the brisk-but-sunny days and the available laps to play in...
My mom's parents drove up (FROM TEXAS! long story short, my grandfather - a former commercial airlines pilot - refuses to fly as a passenger... lmao)
and thoroughly enjoyed time with their great-grandchildren
Button ran poor Grandad ragged - "Come see this!! Come with me to my play room!! Hey Grandad, check out this slide!!"
We went to a Touch-a-Truck event (very local, at my SIL's elementary school) and we got a little silly...
Yup... that would be a naked Button, with a bag over his head.....
I cleared out too-small clothes, and *gulp* pumping supplies...
seriously - we're still nursing 2x a day - morning and night, and I'm enjoying this stress-free phase!
And then it was time for magic to transform little babies into Owls and Pirates, and mommies and daddies into Daphne and Clark Kent!
We have a future NY Ranger (Daddy will have to attend the ass-crack-of-dawn practices!!)
Next up (and not too late) is Ms. Mack's 11 month check-up!
