What a weekend it has been…
The husband and I had our first date in over 9 months yesterday – we went to see X-Men in the afternoon while Bean had a visit with her grandparents.
It was a great movie and a lot of fun, though I do still think it’s going to be awhile before both of us will be OK to leave her at night, I have my eye on a fancy Mexican restaurant for when the next date does come around!
I actually did leave Bean overnight with her daddy last night - the first night I’ve ever spent away from her. I went downtown to celebrate a friend’s birthday – as both of us can’t go to such things at this point, we’ve decided to start some sort of alternating schedule and I guess you could say it was ‘my turn’.
I knew it would be a late night and I driving downtown isn’t easy for me at the best of times, so I decided to crash at my friend’s and come home early.
I must say, it’s possible that I’m just lucky and I’m certainly not taking a huge amount of credit here (especially because I know how easily it could all turn on me) but I really do think the fact that I rarely left the Bean during her first months of life has helped make her into such a secure little one - we have experienced no kind of separation anxiety thus far that I have seen.
Leaving her is certainly not something I’m going to make a regular habit of just yet, but as I will be returning to work sooner than later it’s something I feel a need for both of us to start getting used to, slowly and steadily. So far I’m happy to say it seems to be working out well!
Now I’m just hoping I won’t be eating those words lol.
With that, here’s some of my very favorite posts I’ve been reading over the past couple weeks… Read the rest of this entry »
