This Momma Gets to Pick a Day Away...

As you can tell by my title, Isabella has once again won the teething battle over me.


But the good news? They are ALMOST through. I can see them right there....please, please, PLEASE let those 2 top teeth break through!

This Momma and Daddy are tired. And I know my poor little girl needs a break, too.

Leo got home yesterday and could immediately tell it was another one of those days where it all went wrong.

I just want to tell you a glimpse, a smidge of our day: it began before 4 in the morning.

You can only imagine the good times that were happening here!

Back to when Leo got home. He sees me. He sees Isabella. He sees us both at breaking points.

He tells me I can do something for an entire day.

By myself.

At first that sounded good, heavenly, unheard of.

But now?

Not so much. I would miss them both like crazy and honestly? I have no idea what I would do alone for an entire day.

So I have offered him a middle ground.

How about I get to pick something we all should do together.

I was thinking Barnes and Noble, maybe some ice cream, maybe go to the Outlets in Gulfport.

I am so excited!! I never get to pick something out to do.

If anyone has any fun ideas they do as families that are relatively relaxing, stress free, etc, please do share...I love hearing about new things to try!

Ummm...I can't remember where you live. Is it hot? Do something outside? Go to a park and have a picnic? Go to the pool where all three of you can hang out, or you can take turns being "off duty." You'll find something fun to do and I can't wait to hear about it.

Hope you find something that feels like a break for all of you!

Love you!

that sounds like so much fun! i think you're on the right track for finding good ideas, I always love picnics... but they can actually be a lot of work. ooo the beach too, if you have one nearby, that would be great!

Anyways, whatever you pick, i'm sure youll have fun cuz you'll be with the people you love most :)

Jon is always telling me go out and do something while he watches the baby....Sometimes, I just want to sleep after a bad teething night. Together: We sometimes pick a nearby town that we've never been too and then go explore for the day together. Alone: I like to just go to a bookstore, thriftstore....any store and meander for a couple of diaper bag, no stroller and no one hurrying you.

What a good man you've got! I hope you have fun with whatever you pick! It will feel good to just get out and away from the house, I bet. Sometimes just a day away brings the refreshment we need to keep going on :)

Those top teeth are brutal, aren't they!
