Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 2/27/16

Posted on February 27, 2016

Weekend time! I’m am pretty excited for this weekend because Matt and I are getting a little 24-hour staycation in the city. Without L. This is actually going to be my very first night without him since he was born over 16 months ago. Kind of crazy! I know I’ll miss him a lot but it will be really nice to have a little adult time, especially since that means sleeping in on Sunday. And by sleeping in, I mean waking up a 5:30 anyway but not moving until I feel like it. Ha! Our agenda consists mainly of eating and eating. Oh yeah, some shopping and walking around sans stroller, too.

Any good stories for me about the first time you spent a night away from your children (if you have)? In a few months I’ll be away for two nights (I know, crazy talk) for my sister’s bachelorette party so this will be good practice.

  • awww L and his friiiends!

    And I hope you and Matt had a great night-I hope you enjoyed it and didn’t stress too much about being away from L!

  • L with his friends is too cute! My little one is scared of stuffed animals. I have been away a couple times since she was born about 12 months ago. The first time was a work trip and I didn’t know what to do with myself. Nothing to clean and no one to take care of!

  • it’s ALWAYS difficult to be away from them! the first time I had to leave P overnight was for 4 whole nights when she was only 5 months old. I cried the entire way from pre-daycare drop-off through getting through airport security. Luckily FaceTime helps, and also knowing that it’s good for you, him, and your husband to get away once in a while :) Hope you had a blast – I LOVE that idea!!
