The Parenting Hat: Weekend with One

When you have two kids and you get the opportunity to only watch one, you suddenly realize that having one is a piece of cake. This weekend, Kelsey was at the cabin with my in-laws. Let me say that part again. This weekend. Yes, the entire weekend we only had one child to look after.

It was so relaxing. When Colton napped. We napped. When I cleaned, no one messed it up. We watched TV whenever we wanted. I painted my nails (and had time for them to dry!) We went on a date. I had dinner with a girlfriend. And, Colton got one-on-one attention all weekend long.

And even though it was super relaxing and quiet, we miss our little diva pants so much! I can’t wait to see her this afternoon. In the meantime, Colton and I are going to go outside and finish our game of airplane. He looks totally excited about it, don’t you agree?

  1. I find that when to take one out of the equation it’s just so much different…lighter. Doesn’t matter which one, just pluck one out and it’s amazing the things you have time for and the added patience you have.
