My husband left with the children this morning to go to Ohio to visit his family. I was very sad to kiss them goodbye, letting him take them 8 hours away, but they were excited. I am happy they get to see their family, most of them haven’t even seen the baby since he was first born.
I felt anxious and had a hard time waiting for them to arrive safe and sound but once they did I was able to settle. I have come to Maryland to see my friends and family for a “mental health vacation” as I like to call it. It’s time for me to reflect on me, see family and friends, enjoy being a woman instead of just a wife and mom. It’s already off to a good start, I had a pleasant dinner with my dad and my brother tonight. It was really nice being able to visit with them uninterrupted. I miss time with my dad.
