A couple weeks ago, I was stressed to the max. I reached my breaking point. And just could not get a grip. Between school starting and Alea turning into a cranky-butt TODDLER, I was just not having it! After hours upon hours of trying to get Alea down for a nap, Cory finally got her down and while I picked up her toys in the living room I just started to cry. I was just felt down. Like a failure of a mom. And Cory sensed it. “Why don’t you take next weekend off. Go to your mom’s or something.”
Hold on, what? What was that? Was I hearing him right? I hesitated at first. No, I don’t want to be away from my baby for two whole nights and leave all the work to Cory. Pssh, boy was a dumb! After Cory gave me “the look,” I finally agreed. And then I got excited. A whole weekend away. At my mom’s house. And what perfect timing with school starting that week. I could get all caught up on my homework and actually study in peace! Glorious!
And that my friends, is exactly what I did.
And my sweet mama even put together a little care package for me! She is just too kind for words!
1. Storage basket. 2. Chocolate! 3. Perfume. 4. Cucumber melon body wash 5. Foot scrubber! 6. Tazo tea.
7. Cucumber melon lotion. 8. Mud mask. 9. Candle 10. Moisturizing foot balm. 11. York Peppermint patty. 12. Trail mix.
I truly enjoyed every second of my weekend off. Thank you so much to my wonderful boyfriend and my amazing mama for making it possible & giving me sometime to re-group and study!
