I’ve decided to change up the way I present The Sunday Parenting Party. I’ve decided that I’d like to share a bit more about us and I think I’ve found a way to do it. I’ve become a really big fan of Instagram over the past month. I love being able to get to know other bloggers through the daily pictures they post. I’ve decided to show you our week via Instagram pictures, so that you can get to know us a bit better too!
My husband had the week off of school so I got lots of me time while he hung out with the boys. It was awesome to take some time to reflect, grocery shop alone, and finally get that long overdue hair cut. It’s still a challenge being away for long because I have a little baby who is exclusively breastfed. He’s starting to have a pretty good routine, so I have an idea of when he’ll be hungry and will head back home to nurse. The freedom has been nice though.
In spite of all my freedom, J has been a bit clingy and very loving this week. He’s been giving me lots of hugs, kisses, and cuddles…more than usual. He was worried when I had to take Baby E to the doctor this week. Last time I took E to the doctor, we ended up in the hospital for a few days. That must have made an impact because today he said he missed me so much when I was in the the hospital. Dude, that was like 2 months ago! I guess not having me around is hard for the guy.
We wrapped up the week with a family road trip to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. It was worth the long drive. J played hard all day and fell asleep before we got out of town! We take lots of road trips like this because we need to see as much as we can before we move again. One of the best parts of being a military family is that we get to see so much of our country. We try very hard to see as much as we can in every place we live.
I’m sad to see this week end, as my husband goes back to school tomorrow. He’s about to start his last quarter of school, and it will be a busy one. I guess it’s good that he will be busy. Hopefully it will help prepare me for when he goes back to his regular 8-5(or later) and lots of traveling.
