My little dude had the chance to spend the night with my parents last night. This was so nice and very needed on many levels. He got to spend all day with Grandpa, and he loved every minute of it. Mommy got to spend all day with little princess and no one even cried. We went shopping, went to a friends house, went to lunch and went to see daddy at work. It was really fun to just spend time with her. We don't get to do that very often.
When it came time to pick up my little dude, he was in such a great mood. He was nice to his sister, he was sharing better, and he wasn't hitting. It was funny because he wouldn't stop talking about all the things he did. What he had to eat, where he slept, every little detail. I loved it.
I think that he just really needed a break from mommy, and the same four walls that he is confined to every day. I almost wanted to ask my dad if he could stay longer, but I really did miss him. He wakes up every morning and comes into my bed and cuddles with me for a little while. I missed that this morning. The first words that come out of his mouth every moring is "where is daddy?" but instead my little princess was asking "where's [little dude]?" (she doesn't call him that. She used his real name) It was a little sad. When we went to the store I even missed him asking me for a treat every minute or so. I think that we really needed this time away from each other so we could realize that we can, and will miss eachother.
Now that he is home he was even willing to clean his room, and help his little sister. I am not sure how long this will last, but I will take what I can get!
