Taking a break.
I think it's good as moms to be honest about wanting to get away from your kids from time to time. It's a job that never ends, and without the occasional break it can really wear you down, which affects how good of a mom you can be (at least it does for me, I came home refreshed and happy to see Victor, as opposed to rushing to get him to bed...) Even if it's just for a few hours to do something on your own (maybe even just the dishes), we all need it and there's nothing wrong with admiting it.
So thanks Anna for the pre-baby nostalgia and the no-baby activities/fun!
In other news, my granmother is coming today for the week (she's going to help my mom watch Victor while we're in Montreal next weekend), I'm excited to see her and see what she thinks of my now super-wiggly and vocal Victor. She, my mom, my sister and I are going to see a Christmas concert tonight; I've heard really good things about it so I'm sure it will get me into the Christmas mood (I need a little kick start I think, but this week I plan on getting a lot of Christmas related stuff done, so it's perfect timing!) I think that if the weather (and Victor) cooperates, I'm also going to get his Christmas pictures done, gotta send those out soon!
Happy week to you,
