Also, I got to do some pretty cool things this weekend. I held a huge lizard thing, and had a parrot perch on my arm at the Wild Bird Kingdom. We saw the Falls lit up at night, ate some delicious food, and I SLEPT IN for the first time in 9 months, not just one day, but two mornings in a row. Heaven!
Of course I felt guilty for leaving the boy-o behind and I was thinking about him a lot, and ended up picking him up two little souvenirs to commemorate our first real time apart. He liked the Moose a fair bit as he's super soft, and I think the little bear backpack will be totally adorable once he's a little bigger and can wear it.
So, overall it was definitely a positive experience and I'm really glad I went. Although I'm exhausted from the late nights, and traveling etc. I'm also refreshed in a whole different way and I'm looking forward more than ever to getting back to the serious business of play with my baby boy!
How old was your little one the first time you went away without them?
