As much as I love my lil man to pieces, every once and a while I need some time to just love on my big man aka my Mr. I have such a love/hate relationship with the balancing act of the Momma and the Mrs. inside of me!
The second I start to daydream about getting dressed up for a date night or think about getting that much need pedicure, the momma guilt kicks in. Don't get me wrong - I take a lot of time out for me and us - but it's so hard to enjoy the same level of satisfaction as I once did. We've all been there, I hope!
We ended up having a few extra tickets to the LSU game on Saturday, so we had a tough decision on whether or not to invite friends to the game sans kiddos or to go as a family. We decided to take friends and spend a day as just Mr. & Mrs. We left our parental responsibilities in the hands of Loli & Pop and knew that Jackson would have a better time with them. Besides, kickoff time was also his nap time and I knew that
we I would be chasing around a tired Action Jackson and roaring with Mike the Tiger instead of watching the actual football game.
However, knowing that Jackson was eating my parents out of house and home, seriously 7 pancakes must be a record, and then napping for a good portion of the game allowed me to relax and enjoy our date day! And by the looks of all the self-portraits in my iphone, we may have enjoyed ourselves a little too much:)
