Most of the time, being the mom is fun. I particularly dig being the boss: that’s one of my all-time favorite roles (I’m mostly kidding). Plus, when you’re the mom, grandparents are deemed more fun, so leaving for a weekend is totally do-able.
There are times, though, when being the mom means making tough decisions. For instance, this weekend, we had to make the tough call to leave the boy an extra day–dirty clothes and all–because we were exposed to what might have been a stomach bug this weekend. We don’t want to share, but we sure miss our boy!
If we’re in the clear a little later today, I’ll be off to get him!
