By the time you read this, I will probably be en route to a remote lake house with 4 of my closest girlfriends for a ladies weekend! No husbands, no babies; just a lot of food, wine & games. This will be my first trip away from Jackson. I have only spent one night away from him when he was 6 months old while one of my closest friends had her bachelorette party. Still, my Mom & him were only 15 minutes away . This trip, Jackson & Daddy will be living it up “bachelor-style,” hours away from me.
I’m not nervous because I know Greg will do a great job and my little boy will have a wonderful weekend with his “Dada.” Stay-at-home Moms don’t really get vacations, so this is going to be my vacation. When I was the corporate career woman, I got three weeks paid time off. Now? I work 24/7, no “paid” time off and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! Moms, if you’re reading this with your baby nearby, give him or a hug because I’m going to be missing mine this weekend.
