Simply on vacation

18 Aug

Being new in this business called “parenting”, I’m not yet so familiar with all the To Do’s and Dont’s of this profession.

One “To Do” that I would highly recommend to every new (and older) parent out there would be to make some time for you and your man or you and yourself every now and then. Leave the baby with its grandparents or some friends, enjoy your time and try not to feel guilty about it (I’m good with that but apparently it’s not always so easy). You have no idea how good that feels and what a boost it gives you !!

I’m on the plane back from a 4 day (surprise) w/e in Croatia. It’s the first real get away w/e with hubby since Hugo was born 5 months ago and a little extra. We have left him once before and we try to make time for an evening off at least once a week, but this w/e was a truly one-to-one time for us and only us. The atmosphere was relaxed. Our smiles made their way back to our faces. Time for a SPA massage back into my schedule. Not running after time only enjoying the one we were catching up with. I’ll do it again in no time (so badly I was ready to stay behind a little but longer…)

So really, you need to do this. You need to take time for you or you’ll loose yourself in all that hectic every day obligations that life is imposing on you.

And visit Croatia. It’s worth it !!!

    How completely ironic that I stumble upon your blog this morning. Last night, we left our two month old with my mother. My husband and I enjoyed dinner and a movie, then headed home to catch up on some much needed rest. This is our third night without the little man… and the rejuvination we feel each time we take a break is truly remarkable. Sure, we miss him… but we appreciate him so much more when he is back in our arms. We also enjoy our moments together as husband and wife, and this morning… while I am baby free and my husband is at work… I am enjoying a few precious moments of ME time.

    Croatia is on the other side of the world… but perhaps one day… we will visit.

      Hey. Thanks for writing back. It is so important to make some time for you isn’t it ?? We’re trying to stick to a weekly night out. A movie. Dinner. Anything.. It’s not always so easy but a must I’m order to feel as you say, like a couple. It’s really important !!! Glad that even on the other side of the world, you stumbled upon this blog 🙂 (I read yours by the way. Your baby is really cute 🙂
