This past weekend, the hubby and I took the opportunity to escape for a little, one night, mini-getaway. It may not seem like a big deal. But it was. It was the first time in her 16.something months of life that I left her overnight.
Surprisingly, in the hours leading up to leaving, I wasn’t even nervous at all. Which is, obviously, a good thing. It showed me that we were all ready for this and that I knew that she was going to be in great hands.
We didn’t go far. Which was fine. We just scooted over to Niagara Falls, had dinner, went to a really great Beatle’s tribute show and stayed over. The next day, we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, did some shopping and saw The Vow. Despite the fact that I did not sleep well in the hotel and was wide awake earlier than Evalyn and I normally get up, it was a refreshing, rejuvenating break from the day to day.
And despite the fact that hubster and I didn’t take a single photo to document the time we had away, we do have some photographic evidence to show that Evalyn was no worse for wear during her evening, night and day without Mommy and Daddy.
The best part of our time away was coming back and seeing how excited she was to see us and hearing about how good she was while we weren’t there. She had a blast with her Auntie M and Auntie L and we so very greatly appreciated the time away.
