This Friday, Hubby and I are going to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary!! Since the birth of our son, we really haven’t taken any time to just be a couple again. With the exception of the occasional baby free dinner, and when he is at daycare, RJ is always in the care of at least one of us. This is partly because we are alone in this town, the closes family is a little over an hour away, but also I’m scared to leave him! Not that I don’t anyone else can keep him. That’s not my fear at all. My fear is that he will cry incessantly, won’t behave, eat or sleep! Yes, that’s it, I think that my son will not know how to function without his parents!! I know it’s absurd, but I don’t want him to drive any one crazy but, us!LOL That being said, he will make his first, extended, overnight trip away from home, without us, this week. He’s staying with a family friends. They have two 7 year old girls, who believe RJ is a doll baby! They will keep him plenty occupied. I’m praying he won’t starve himself in protest to us leaving him behind!
So, with the baby away, Hubby and I will get a long weekend of couple time:) We got a little taste, and reminder of what that is like the Friday before New Year’s. RJ’s daycare of was open, but Hubby was off, so we took RJ to school and had a Mommy/Daddy day! We did some shopping, had lunch and even caught a movie! It was wonderful. I’m looking forward to our long weekend ahead. Hubby’s manager is letting us use her family’s beach house. *Have I mentioned how awesome she is?!* I’m looking forward to our time together, but a little more than that, I’m looking forward to being able to sleep past 6am!
