If you know us, you know we can be a little crazy.
So you won’t be surprised when I tell you that we just took a vacation with Joshua to Breckenridge, CO.
Yes, yes–we are crazy.
But to be completely honest, when I stop being overly dramatic and negative and look intstead at the positive, we had a wonderful time.
Did I get a break from nursing? No.
Did I vacation from nap schedules? No.
Did I receive rest instead of sleepless nights? No. Not even close.
But did I lounge in my pajamas? Yes.
Did I giggle in bed with Josh instead of getting up to work? Yes.
Did I take lots of walks in near perfect weather? Yes.
Did I soak up sunshine with my smiley baby boy? Yes.
Did I indulge in good food and lots of popcorn? Yes.
Did Erik and I watch an entire season of Everwood? Yes.
Did I start and finish two novels? Yes.
Did I kick back with good friends and a glass of wine? Yes.
Did I sing Patti Cake and Head & Shoulders multiple times just to make Josh smile? Yes.
Did I stay off Facebook and the Internet for the whole week? Yes.
Did I converse with my husband over coffee and Bibles? Yes.
Did I vacation?
I may be just as exhausted as when I left, but boy am I glad we went. Motherhood changes everything … for the better.
