The babies punish me ruthlessly every time I come back from leaving them. So during the few days of chaos and misery when I return, I always ask myself if leaving is worth it... The answer is the same every time -- HECK, YES!
This time was a very quick trip to Austin to meet my very best friends new addition who is the cutest, sweetest, most cuddly baby on the planet!! But maybe I am just biased because she is named after me!
Basically, packed in a day -- a girls lunch, pedicure, eyebrow threading (ouch!), a visit to my quintuplet mom mentor/guru -- Rachelle, then a fun dinner with another dear friend Suzy Q. I always say when I am away from the babies that I am going to get a ton of sleep, but end up getting less than I do at home.
Now -- I have to admit that I am afraid that the terrible two's are starting to invade my home a titch before 2... There are days when I feel overwhelmed and want to just hide under the covers. That's why weekends like this are so important to me -- I can recharge and find my smile when the frenzy starts. I say it all the time, but I am so grateful to my fantastic husband and the incredible support system that I have that allows me to "run away" when I need to.
