Mom and I go to get our hair cut together every couple of months and have for as long as I can remember. It is something we both look forward to- we always have so much fun. On Saturday, we made hair appointments at our favorite salon in Atlanta and I nervously agreed to let Baby G stay with his Daddy for the first time… and as I was walking out the door… FAIL…
I couldn’t leave him. Don’t get me wrong- this had NOTHING to do with not trusting Ian to take care of him- Ian is just as over-protective of our little man as I am, I just couldn’t imagine being away from him for a couple of hours. (I blamed my change of heart on not having the car seat base installed in Ian’s car). So… off we went to get our hair done- Grandma, Mommy and Grae. 🙂 After our hair appointments, we went shopping in some cute little boutiques, then went out for a delish dinner- and Grae didn’t cry once! It was the longest time we have had him out and about- 6 1/2 hours- and he was just as happy as could be the whole time! My mom kept telling me that she could have NEVER done that with me when I was an infant. I’m so proud of my little guy- and thankful beyond words he is so easy to take care of. I don’t know how we got so lucky.
And to make this perfect day even more amazing- my mom spent the night and took care of Grae so Ian and I could get a full night’s rest. We woke up feeling like brand new people. Both of us had forgotten what sleep felt like.
Thank you so much for everything, Mom. Grae had a great time at his slumber party with his Grandma 🙂 🙂
