missing Lil J

Mommy decided to go and get some pampering done today - compliments of Daddy.  She went to the spa and got a relaxing massage and a fabulous mani-pedi.  But the entire time she was there, she felt guilty for leaving her Lil J even though she knew he was having the time of his life with Daddy. 

It's Sunday and usually the weekends are reserved for family time with Lil J and Miss S.  This weekend, Miss S was spending time with her mom so Lil J and Daddy got some "male bonding time".

Mommy tried to enjoy her day at the spa (and trust me, she did!) but a little voice at the back of her mind kept making her feel bad for leaving her son.  Even if it was just for a few hours.  At the same time, it was nice to get a little alone time.  In fact, Mommy took advantage of it.  After the spa (and since she was already downtown), she headed to the mall to do some shopping for her family.  The local department store had an additional 50% off sale (The Bay) and Mommy couldn't resist looking.  In the end, she found a gorgeous pea coat and cute top for Miss S. for a combined bargain price of $28!!  The jacket itself was regular $60!

Once Mommy realized she had spent almost two hours in the mall, she ran to her car and raced home.  Well not really racing.  Mommy drives really carefully.  Most of the times.

Then she had to pick up some items at the local Wal-Mart.  Bananas and pizza shells.  Another 30 minutes gone.  Have to get home!!

Finally, Mommy made it home.  As she turned the key and opened the door, she could hear Lil J laughing wholeheartedly and she knew that it was okay to leave him - even if it was for a few hours.  Daddy greeted her with a kiss and a smile and made sure she enjoyed her day at the spa.  Lil J came running up to Mommy and gave her three kisses on the lips (more like full-on slobber french kisses - Mommy's favourite!) and a nice big smile.  Then, for the rest of the night, he wouldn't let her out of his sight.  Not for one minute.  Not for one second.  Lil J missed Mommy.  Mommy missed Lil J.  A lot.

  1. I feel the same way when I leave Baby D but I always know he is in good hands! We need to do things for ourselves sometimes and it isn't always a priority and I feel guilty about it, too! It is good to have a little pampering every now and then! I am sure Lil J was so happy to see you!

  2. Thanks hun! Now here's to hoping that going to Vegas for a couple nights with the hubby won't torture me (or us!).....
