Some days you just need a play date

My cute friend that watches Liam was out of town this week doing a crazy obstacle course race (high fives to her, that’s awesome!) and instead of finding another babysitter arrangement like I normally do I decided to take a day off from work and spend it with my little guy.  And sometimes a day off with your kiddo is just what the doctor ordered.  Don’t get me wrong, life has been really good recently. Busy, but good. We’ve have gotten into a good daily routine and we all seem to enjoy our days. But, there are some days that your heart aches a little when you hear of all the new things your little one is learning and you aren’t there to witness or experience it. I will say, I love hearing stories of Liam thriving, learning and growing, but an occasional random Friday off is just what I need to feel okay about going to work every day.

We had a fun filled day with friends and with each other. We started the day off with a morning run. I use to love running, but I can never get my butt out of bed in the mornings to do it. So, today I did. The run didn’t last long because I am so out of shape and it started to rain, but it was fun nonetheless.

We spent the afternoon with some of our friends at the aquarium. Now that Liam is a little bigger I love watching him interact with other kids. He was in heaven playing with his friends and exploring. He thought he was big stuff running from exhibit to exhibit and I could barely keep up with him. Thus, the lack of pictures – he is always a blur on my camera. Any suggestions for catching those action shots?

Kids or no kids. Working moms or stay at home moms.  If you are feeling like you need a pick me up, seriously consider taking a day off. If it is to spend some time with your kids or spend time on yourself, you won’t regret it. Life can be stressful and it is easy to get lost in the grind. Taking the time to do something you love and recharge is something everyone deserves every now and again.
