My weekend was filled with all things... Bowl games, baby items and back to school!
Always tired yet happy to get back to work after the weekend. Especially with the weekend as active as we continue to have our place! From the bowl games ups and downs… Packing up baby items and finally saying goodbye to the new mom stage and the new baby phase. And doing mountains of laundry getting the kids ready for back-to-school after the long holiday break! All bittersweet and yet with each turn, more memories and a bit less money!
I was caught up in what to keep and what to get rid of as we have passed over from baby to the toddler stage with my youngest. I don't think I'm someone who can be called a hoarder, however, my poor husband who wanted nothing more that uninterupted time with some football though it was just not to be had, probably is wondering if I am or not! Yes I want to keep that, No I changed my mind.... My honey-do list consisted of organizing and taking pictures of all the baby stuff we're finally gonna part with. I think I can remember conversation that was something along the lines of, "HONEY, I need you to get something down from a shelf in the garage for me! And can you please clean this up... Oh and if you have an extra second, I'd really like us to clean this garage out!" He was like, "Can we do it after the game?!" To which I think I said something like, "I've broken like three nails already babe! Really?!" (As if that is some priority to rearrange his day) Bless his heart! I tried to make up it up to him, but just had to share the hilarity! There's just always a bit of anxiety when you finally pack up the last of the baby stuff I guess. For me, it's two part...
First, the last time I did this, I found out I was pregnant like days later! That was expensive and a bit ironic. Turns out I'm not the only one. Not to simplify things too much, but I've heard from others this happens a lot... Kinda like when it rains, just as soon as you wash your car! Okay, not really but you know what I mean, right?!
Second,the realization that we probably won't go down this road again has made my hubby feel relieved it seems. I on the other hand, feel kinda mixed! I actually miss the early days of midnight feedings, exhaustion and that new baby smell! :)
What about you?
How was your weekend? What was the biggest thing you can remember about the last couple of days that weren't nearly long enough? Sometimes they go by so fast they are almost a blur… But share what you haven't had the opportunity tell anybody else yet. This is a place for us to exchange ideas experiences & know that you always have someone in your corner and talk to talk about anything with!
