My daughter felt I needed a break from the baby and decided to take him over to our friends house. I had my reservations for several reasons, however, he is her child and I let her decide. In the end, I did appreciate the break. Unfortunately, friday night that he was gone, I had a series of busy, not bad, dreams and I woke up exhausted. I do remember the dreams but do not see the relevance to my life....I guess I do, thinking about it.
Saturday, very dear friend of mine came up from San Diego (my old home town) and took me back there for an overnight trip. We went to dinner then just hung out the rest of the time. It was so awesome. I did not realize how much I needed to take a break. My teenage boys kept the baby while my daughter went to work. They did an awesome job and kept in contact with me every step of the way. Proved interesting for my boys. They now have just a wee bit more appreciation for how much work it takes to take care of a baby, run a daycare and keep the house going all at the same time! LOL! I feel so much better starting the week today.
When I got back home, my grandson was so glad to see his Nana that he wouldn't let me too far out of his sight! I got lots of smiles from him! Kids are so amazing from the cradle all the way up to teens and beyond.
