Last week I flew away with my man to California for a quick getaway! Sans kids. Yes, you read that right… we went to Disneyland without them. How mean is that?! !!
I hope they will forgive us someday. I think they will because I have noticed how aware Avery is of our relationship. Even today I heard her talking to Quincey as they were watching a Veggie Tales episode, “I think Daddy and Mommy are in love like them.”
Spending time as a couple is something I strive to make a priority whether it’s date night or stealing a moment after the kids go to bed. Life moves quickly and I don’t want the kids to grow up and we turn to each other… what’s your name again? I want to make the time to keep our relationship connected. Sure, there are moments when he rolls his socks in a ball and chucks them down the hall and other guy stuff that drives me nuts, but I’m sure I do things that bug him too. So it’s nice to know when he holds my hand and when kids aren’t around that we still like each other… a lot actually.
Here’s to reconnecting to the magic of Disneyland, the beach and the Dodgers game! !!!
Then like boring, responsible parents we changed our flight to arrive home six hours earlier because we didn’t want to get home at midnight and miss kissing those munchkin cheeks goodnight. I will be regretting this decision come Wednesday… ; )
