A Weekend Away.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. That is for sure.

My husband actually got his parents to baby-sit our son overnight on Saturday and made reservations for us at a really nice restaurant. (Who is this man and what did he do with my real husband?)

Dinner was awesome...and so was our alone time. It was really great. Of course, I had to work this weekend, but I still got to sleep in some this morning.

It is amazing to me how much I can start to miss my son in just a day. He was gone for like 24 hours..although since I was at work early Saturday morning, I didn't see him for longer than that. But, it is so nice to be able to look forward to coming home and spending some time with him. It is hard, though, after he has been at the in-laws. I don't think they EVER tell him "no" so when he gets home, it is like we have to re-learn all the rules. That sucks. I hadn't seen him in almost two days and almost immediately I had to put him in time out for hitting me because I took his dinner plate away since he was dumping food on the floor.

Anyone else have to deal with that? Repercussions of time at the grandparents--or anyone else who spoils them rotten? Any suggestions?

Well, yes. The Things spend at least a week with grandparents every summer. And I need to retrain them to the fact that my entire existance does not revolve around them. When they are away, everything is always all about them. They are not spoiled but they are doted on. Don't get me wrong, that's a good thing and I wouldn't change it for anything. But it still makes adjusting difficult for the first few days.

Of course, you knew all this stuff already. ;)
