So I made a post earlier this past week as a letter to Andy for our 3 year wedding anniversary [if you haven’t seen it, you can find that HERE], well tonight we had plans to go have dinner alone while his mom watched both the kids.
So after he got off work this evening, we dropped both kids off at his moms and went out to a local Mexican restaurant. I swear y’all we were not in there 15 MINUTES, and his mom calls.
Apparently David had been screaming his head off crying for the past 45 minutes [from the time we left her house up until she called us]. I literally had only taken 2…yep, you read that right TWO, bites of my food.
Normally we would have finished eating before going to get them, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually heard David scream-cry that hard his whole life. I snagged our waiter, got us some boxes and the check, and we were out.
I literally ONLY wanted a chance to eat a hot meal for our anniversary. I got two bites and then had to stop. I have no idea how I ended up spoiling David so damn bad y’all, but it’s actually stressing me out now because I can’t get anything done. If he can’t see me or at least hear my voice he has a complete full-blow meltdown until I pick him up and cuddle him.
Of course, Andy’s mom was ok with us finishing our food at her house, but that wasn’t exactly the “break” I wanted because [just like every other night when we’re eating at home] I had to hold David while I ate because he would freak out if I put him down.
Don’t get me wrong, I love that David loves him momma, it melts my heart. But y’all….THIS MOMMA NEEDS A BREAK FROM BEING MOMMA 24/7. Just an hour or two one day a month where I’m not hearing someone cry, or call momma, or need/want anything. Just a quiet minute to eat a hot meal, take a hot bubble bath, drink a glass a wine, and smoke my vape pen IN PEACE!
If you’re a momma with more than one kid, how do you manage to get time alone [bonus points if you manage to get alone time when one kid has terrible separation anxiety]?? Let me know in the comments section below. Give me some ideas to try because I honestly think I’m going to lose my mind if I don’t get some peace and quiet soon.
