We survived our first year with the Elf on a Shelf. To be honest, I know my husband and I had more fun than we wouldn’t have thought. And, mo’s importantly, this brought a little holiday magic and cheer to my oldest. Surviving 8.5 months of a pandemic like a champ? I’d give him almost anything he asks for!
Tomorrow I fly off to North Carolina to celebrate/host the bridal shower and bachelorette part of one of my best girls, Miss Liz Louise. I cannot wait to party and celebrate with her.
I haven’t flown since my little was born and what’s more, I haven’t left him for more than two nights. That was a road trip up to the Nor Cal coast. This is flying to the other side of the country. I’m anxious but excited. I know that my husband is more than capable, but that doesn’t mean I don’t worry. What if he gets sick? What if he goes through a sleep regression or growth spurt? What if he forgets about me? I know the last one is completely irrational but, I’m a mom and a worrier: it’s a recipe for disaster.
I know that I am going to have fun and enjoy the break. I know I need the time off from work. I can feel the burn out coming. I could use the change of scenery and sometime to just be me; not an employee, a wife, or a mom. I will always be those things, but it will be nice to just be one of the girls for a few days, not just hours.
Wish me safe travels and maybe if you’re lucky, I’ll blog from the road!
At my bachelorette, what seems like years ago (it was)…aren’t we cute?!
