Just call me jetsetter...it seems like I've been here, there, and everywhere lately and I kind of have. We'd just gotten home from vacation, but when your little brother asks you to go with him to see his little sweetie pie in Arizona (even if it's June), you go.
Sometimes being there for somebody, just because, feels better then getting back to the swing of things, even for an insane schedule person. (like moi)
I'm not gonna lie, it was freakin' hot!
Like burn your retinas hot.
Fry your feet hot.
We contemplated taking the little bugger to the zoo or waterpark,
but being the seasoned mother that I am, I suggested the free pool at our hotel,
a 1.5 year old doesn't know the diff anyway, right?
So we did.
We pooled it up for 4 days.
Soaked in the desert rays.
Smooched little Christian till his cheeks were pink.
Bought him $3 swim toys at Wally World and made his day.
It was a blessing to say the least to spend that kind of 1-on-1 time with him.
I know we've all got our drama, right? But can I just interject that not being with your baby just plain sucks, for lack of a better term.
Without the gory details, I'm sure you can gather that Christian's not with us a lot.
But we weren't about to let that phase us those precious days we had with him.
When you're too pruny to swim anymore, just go to the bookstore.
They have Starbucks.
I'm sorry, but what else is there? Really?
Naptime was my cue to assume my position by the pool.
I've promised myself a tan this summer, and I can safely say that after 4 days in Arizona, it's coming along quite nicely.
Just because your situation is what it is today, doesn't mean that's what it'll be a year from now, a month, a week.
The future holds bright things.
Situations don't stay the same forever (Praise God for that, right?!)
I just know somebody needed to hear that today.
Missed you, as always!
Happy to be home :)
