Today has been a lovely Saturday, one that couldn’t take place without support.
The alarm woke me at 8 to shower for my day, Mike and the tot already up. I showered in peace, was greeted a short time later by said tot in his “supr’ pup peejey’s” and was out the door by 9.
Carrie and I drove thru Starbucks, went to Tiny Canary where we purchased some amazing hand-made goodies, had lunch downtown and then went to a fabric shop that nearly killed me (hello, inspiration) and to a children’s boutique. Just when I thought the day was as good as it could get I came home to find Nate napping. Then, I took a nap, too.
I know that having one kid and keeping a house isn’t the hardest job out there, quite the opposite actually. That being said, for me, it’s hard at times (like when he’s awake)(I kid) as much as I adore my son and my husband it is absolutely essential that I have time away and to do things that bring me back to who I am. Without the support of Mike these days couldn’t happen. He encourages me to get out and take a breath. Today I am thankful for him allowing me to do just that.
