What a weekend!
We moved my mom up here to one of our rentals over the weekend. The longest Charlie has ever been in a car seat before was 2 hours. He does so well but this trip was 6 hours. Bf drove a different truck so it was just me and baby in the truck. Oh.. and snow.. awesome. REALLY! It wasn't really that bad, just through one town so I slowed way down but after that it was dry and beautiful. God mom all packed up and loaded on Saturday, dinner with an old friend was wonderful. We spent the night then finished loading on Sunday and drove back up. Charlie was a bit fussy on the way back. I don't blame him at all, I get fussy when I sit for too long too.
Mom being up here helps. I have an additional babysitter (down the road when she's more comfortable with him) I have a renter in one of the houses that won't destroy the place and will actually pay rent. AND when a visit in order she's a few miles down the road, not 6 hours. All in all I think it's a good decision.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
I am sure it's great to have your mom so close. Mine lives about 10 minutes away and I love it.
