Sometimes I have a hard time remembering my life before child, husband and house. And cat.
Life was a little more carefree. A lot lighter. (Oh how I was much lighter.) I had time to waste – and waste it, I did. It was full of concerts and friends and travel. I read a lot of magazines. I subscribe to a lot of magazines now, but it’s been months since I’ve read one. (I keep them stacked in my bedroom, in the off chance I’ll read one.)
I could sleep in on the weekend or wake up super early to meet friends for a long run if I chose. And if I went for that long run, I could nap in the afternoon if I desired.
My weekends now involve wrangling the toddler back to his bed if it’s before 7 a.m. Bedtime is often a challenge (such as last night when I let him stay up a few minutes late thinking he could handle it. Spoiler alert: He couldn’t hang until 7:50.)
I love life as it is, but there are weekends when I wish I’d taken full advantage of the lazy weekends.
Lazy Saturday mornings. Oh how I miss the lazy Saturday mornings.
And that’s where I am this weekend. I hope you’re able to enjoy a lazy weekend. (The boy and I will be living it up – hopefully outside – as my husband is traveling. Solo parenting for the win!)
