We had adult conversations, listened to real music, and didn’t have to worry about what little ears were hearing (don’t get the wrong impression here, we weren’t swearing it up and getting all crazy now). We took cheesy pictures where people stopped us and asked us if they were engagement photos. When we laughed and said nope, we’ve been married for six years and are just having fun, a lot said wow, good for you, and a few turned to their significant other and said why don’t we take pictures like that.
Overall I think a little time away from the nuggets was a good thing for us. No matter if you feel like supermom and that you have everything in control (I’d sure like to meet you if that’s the case) a little break is a beautiful thing. Not only was it a good thing for us as a couple but a good thing as parents as well.
We are now hoping to incorporate a getaway once a year even if it’s not a full blown out trip, there are so many great cities to explore. So, if you’ve ever thought about taking time away, just try it out. As long as you are comfortable with the person watching your little one, go have fun!
