Happy Monday! Today is the day. My baby and I start our new routine. Today is Sam’s first day making new friends and hopefully wonderful memories. I am up and at it this morning getting the last of his stuff in his school bag.
Before I break down and start crying, I’m going to change the subject and tell you about my weekend!
It started out on Friday night by this inspirational wine cap! I did just that!
We had good friends, Amanda and Josh over for supper on Friday night! They are great to come to our place so that we can have a quiet supper while Sam sleeps upstairs. Amanda brought dessert which was McCann cake for Ryan’s birthday!
Saturday morning I was up early and started getting ready for a busy day. I tried to keep Sam entertained so Ryan could get a few hours of sleep before I had to head out the door. Our spring weather is gone and we got lots of snow and freezing rain over the weekend. Meaning that he had to work.
Sam helped me get ready for our church’s Irish Tea. It’s grown and grown over the years and I believe this was one of our best turn outs yet! Of course I couldn’t help but remember being 36 weeks pregnant for the event last year! This year I was A LOT more comfortable and able to help a lot more.
While I was at the tea, I got a text from Ryan telling me that Sam had been getting into everything! ha ha! Ryan said he turned his back for one second to then find our boy standing up a couple of stairs and pulling our DVD’s off their shelf.
That night we had some spaghetti for supper, one of Sam’s favourite meals!
I wanted to capture this picture on Saturday. Lately, Sam tries so hard to get as close to me as possible. When watching cartoons, he stands up and then squishes his face up against mine! I don’t mind the extra snuggles one bit!
After Sam went to bed, Jilly came over for a movie night! Traditionally, Jill and I would have seen the next Hunger Games movie in theatres but the busy holiday season had gotten away with us and we were never able to go! It was on paperview this weekend and we had to rent it! The best part was that it has been so long since I have read the book so I had no idea what was going to happen! Ha ha!
Sunday morning Ryan finally got home from work just as Sam and I were heading out the door to church.
After church Sam and I headed to my parents for breakfast and playtime. It was great to let Sam crawl around their place and make as much noise as he wanted knowing that he wouldn’t wake Ryan up.
When I got home I put Sam down to bed and as my boys slept I got ready for the week and did a few little birthday crafts.
They both woke up and Ryan entertained Sam while I made supper. The entertainment of choice? Dancing around the kitchen! Ha ha!
I grabbed a couple extra snuggles last night before Sam headed into bed. I won’t lie, I went to bed a little sad last night and had trouble actually falling asleep. But, today is the day and I am going to put on a happy face for my boy. I know that this first day will be the hardest for me. On one hand I am incredibly sad but on the other I feel as though we are ready. Here’s hoping Sam (and I) adjust well to our new day care/working Momma schedule!
How was your weekend?
