If I could spend a guilt free day away from my child, I would...
So, Charlie is my favorite person to hang out with. Even during his not so easy days. But if I could go away for a whole day and not feel guilty and have a good time...
Manicure, pedicure, hair done, I'd go shopping and not stay close to the restroom the whole time. I'd complete my entire shopping list in one trip. I'd carry my purse instead of my diaper bag. I'd turn the music up really loud in the car and go for a long drive.
That being said.. if Charlie wasn't there I wouldn't have fun... but oh for just a day to jump in a lake.
Mani, Pedi, Hair, Shopping.. Woo! But I agree with you.. my babe is like the coolest thing in the world to hang out with too :) Changes everything!
Get my hair cut and highlighted, my eyebrows waxed. I would have on a cute outfit and heels, and my makeup would have been done in the amount of time I like. I'd go out to lunch by myself and sit at a table quietly enjoying the fact that nobody was picking food off my plate or whining about their food being too hot/cold/small/big/spicy/boring/whatever. I would go shopping for myself and would sit down in a bookstore or library and read part of one of the 30 books that are on my list of books I want to read but don't have time for.
And then the very next day? I would relish in all the endless requests, snuggles, touching, and maybe even the whining because I know I would miss it.
