Mother's Day Out

I love being able to stay at home with James and am thankful for all the time I get to spend with him. The first year has gone by so fast, and I know before I can believe it he will be all grown up and gone.  However I have to admit I have been anxiously looking forward to Mother's Day Out.  Last winter we decided that it would be good for the family for mom to have a little alone time each week. :)  He only goes one day a week for a few hours, but it was so nice to be able to get things done around the house without feeling guilty for not playing with him.  I don't know how I am going to let him go to kindergarten one day though.  I was tearing up just saying goodbye for a morning!  It's hard letting other people take care of your baby!  I was really glad to see him when it was time to pick him up.  Of course they told me he had cried a lot and not slept at all.  Somehow I wasn't surprised.  Unfortunately I did not nearly finish my to-do list, and I may have unrealistic expectations for what can be accomplished in a single morning but oh well.  I'm already looking forward to next week!
Everything laid out.  Thank you Rebecca and Sara for his lunch box and book bag!

Ready to go!

No I have not had a shower or put on makeup in this picture! :)

He has his own apple name tag and his own cubby.  The elementary teacher in me got tickled about this.


  1. Yay for your family!!! He looks so cute with a back pack!

  2. Glad you are getting some time to yourself. I put Mason in one day a week when he was one too, some days I didn't do anything but sit on the couch and read! ha!
