So this little cheeky-faced, Lego obssessed and 'mummy's boy' man decided to 'run away' from home this week! He's only 4 and a half!! On Sunday, as we were driving to my mum's house for lunch as we often do, he thought he might like to have a sleep over at his grandmother's house. I told him that it was fine with me but he needed to ask her first. So he did, and it was fine, and so he stayed the night. This was relief to me, as now at 36 weeks, the whole dinner to bedtime chunk of the day not only does my head in but is super exhausting for this mama. Putting only Zoe to bed is far easier.
However, the next day he told my mum that he wanted to stay away for three days. He was very clear about this. My poor mum was fine with this too, so I took it as a chance to get lots more things done around our house that I have been meaning to, especially with a newborn babe due to arrive soon. It's impossible for me to get any major chores done around here at the moment when my two cherubs are around. So I enjoyed the three days where it was just me and my girl, and we got HEAPS done together.
I just found it quite funny that my little 'mummy's boy' was so determined to stay away from home "for 3 days"! He either doesn't want to stay there or only will stay for a night, but this time......I was surprised but enjoyed while I could. It made me miss him a lot, so there were lots of cuddles when he finally did come back home. Sometimes time apart is just the ticket!
