Mummy and Daddy are going away for two nights without our boys!!
I am feeling a mixture of excitement at the thought of attending a wedding without one or more of the following affecting me:
Which has been the case for all weddings I have attended for the last 3 1/2 years
and which ultimately means I can *drink* alcohol and let my hair down!!
However, I am also feeling nervous and guilty for not taking Burton and Jenson with us, because although they have spent a night away from us more than once (well twice in Jenson's case and several in his brother's), we have never gone away while they have been in someone else's care! We only made the decision not to take them last weekend, as up until then we were all going. However, having discussed it, and after my Mum and Step Dad offered to have the boys for us, OH and I decided we would go it alone.
Personally, having only had one night out together since having Burton and our last night away was back in 2008, I feel these couple of nights away will be good for us. Good for our relationship I mean. As Jon and Jenny instead of Daddy and Mummy. I think we need to do something as a couple instead of parents just for a change: just for once.
As I mentioned our last trip way was September 2008. OH was working away back then in Cornwall and I took a very rare Saturday off from working at my cafe and travelled down on the Friday night after work and went to stay with him until Monday when I drive back early to open the cafe.
It's not that me, or indeed my OH, want time away from our children and I know it will feel very odd not to have them with us. However, time on our own to do adult things and well spend time on our own will be nice. It is odd how I feel I need to justify our decision isn't it? I am struggling between looking forward to it and feeling bad about it.
Blimey just think, we will have to find things to talk about and I will have spare hands with no child, toys,food, baby wipes etc... being held in one of them! It also means a late night - a late night that doesn't involve twitter too lol. Oh and some alcohol - did I mention that there will probably be alcohol??
But still, I can't help but worry and I know that I won't relax fully while we are away from them. I know they are in safe hands and will have a brilliant time though so I guess I should just not worry.
Well I am sure a few cheeky glasses of wine will help me out there! Did I mention....oh ok I did!
