A low-key weekend...just what this hard workin' mama needed. I worked SO much last week - it was awful. I was miserable all week. I cried more than I have in a long time. And I was just spent. So a weekend of no plans was exactly what I needed.
I had to work until 6 Friday and then went and picked up Camden from the Crossfit box Matt works out/coaches at. We made a quick stop at Rite Aid and, of course, I had to spoil my little guy - he pretty much got what he asked for....a new sippy cup, a box of gluten free chocolate cookies, and some plastic Easter eggs. We got home, face timed with my parents, had some dinner, and headed to bed.
Saturday I got up with Camden and snuggled with him on the couch while we watched some Daniel Tiger for a little bit. I headed out for a quick run and as soon as I got home C asked to take a shower (he's obsessed with taking showers lately!!) So I jumped in with him while Matt headed to his box to help out/coach (first week of Crossfit Open so he'll be there more than usual.) So after our shower, C and I headed out for our date. Our first stop - Target. He got to pick out a new toy and also bribed me into buying him a new t-shirt ("because I have to have it mama.") And as we were walking to the registers, we walked past the cards and out of the corner of his eye he saw a card with a duck on it and runs over to it and says "I have to buy this for daddy." And there was no talking him out of it so we bought the card and I realized I'm doing something right. This kid is seriously the sweetest, most thoughtful child EVER. After Target, we headed to the library where we read books and played. It was so, so much fun - Camden and I both thrive on one on one time with each other :)
We headed home for a quick lunch and nap. I actually napped while he did, which was glorious, and Matt spent that quiet time working on our taxes. We spent the rest of Saturday just hanging out and playing. We ordered Mexican takeout for dinner and after Camden was in bed Matt and I just watched some TV and indulged in some adult beverages.
Sunday Camden was up bright 'n' early so Matt got up with him so I could sleep until 7. I got downstairs and almost immediately bundled Camden up and outside we went. We had gotten a little bit of snow overnight so he loved gathering that up and playing in it. He got cold so we went inside and continued to play with the snow inside, burying his animals in it and all that sorta fun stuff. The boys went grocery shopping while I hit up my Barre/Pilates class (which off topic - I am so obsessed with!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!) I got home shortly after 11 and Matt was already starting the week's food prep. Camden was getting tired and cranky so we sat down for lunch but he didn't really want anything to do with it. He was just crying and being whiny, asking for his binky and to snuggle with me. So off to the couch we went and within 5 minutes he was fast asleep in my arms and I was in HEAVEN. I seriously could have stayed there all day with him. And the rest of the day was more of the same - playing, laundry, etc. This mama needed this sort of weekend with her little guy and I could tell Camden did too. There is nothing more this kid loves than his family and just being home with us.
