The boys left not-so-bright and early at 5am on Friday morning. Me? I was still sleeping. A little while later, I woke up and got ready for work and Mason woke up shortly after that. Friday was business as usual. I dropped off Mason at school and went to work. I ended up getting off slightly early, so I went to Starbucks and worked on some stuff on the computer until Mason was done with speech at 4pm. I picked him up and we headed off to get his hair cut. He did exceptionally well during his hair cut and once we were done at 5:30pm, we were headed on our way back home to grab some dinner.
I opted for Chick-fil-a and decided to eat there instead of taking it home. I know this sounds crazy, but this was my first time taking Mason to a restaurant on my own. I've literally never taken him out to eat and eaten at a restaurant by ourselves; we're always with someone else. I'm happy to report that things went well!
Isn't my dinner date so cute with his new big boy hair cut?
It went so well in fact, that I decided to get us some ice creams to celebrate. Only...
Mason dropped his on the ground approximately 3 seconds after we got outside. He did SO well when we were heading outside and then when we went to sit down, he tried to stand it on the table and it just fell straight on to the ground. Fortunately for him, he has a nice mommy and I pretty much let him eat all of my cone with me intervening occasionally to clean up the cone and make sure it didn't totally drip all over.
Clearly he hated it.
Saturday morning, I had an early wake up call at 6am. We got up, watched some cartoons, ate breakfast, and had a lazy morning until we had to get ready for Mason's school. I attempted a few pictures before we left and he obliged for a little while and then he was over. it.
While he was at school, I ran a couple errands including going to Target and shopping for some shoes for a wedding I'm in in May. I picked him up at 2pm, we came home, he took a nap, and then we had a nice, quiet night in since we're both recovering from colds. I put him to bed around 8pm and watched some TV by myself.
At some point I fell asleep on the couch and woke up to Mason crying hysterically and screaming around 1:30am. I rushed upstairs only to find that he was totally fine. I picked him up, came downstairs to turn off the lights that were on, and brought him in to my bed. I have no idea what the problem was, but we slept together all night long and woke up at 7am.
Again, we had a lazy morning and then headed to the grocery store to do some shopping. I ended up buying us both Starbucks' on the way out because when Mommy is in charge, everyone deserves a Starbucks while grocery shopping!
Shortly after we got home, we got a call from my sister in law and nieces asking if we wanted to meet at the park for a picnic, so we picked up some sandwiches and headed to a new-to-us park. My niece called it the "pirate park" because it had a pirate ship but Mason was most excited by the huge digger parked in the parking lot.
After a couple hours at the park, I thought for sure that he would be ready for a nap, so we headed home. I put him in his room for a nap while I baked some muffins, but to my dismay, there was no sleeping going on. Seth came home around 3:30pm and I ended up just getting Mason from his room. We visited with Daddy and Papa for a while before Papa headed home and we headed to Nanny's house for Sunday night dinner.
Overall, we had the BEST weekend together! As much as I love having Seth's help on weekends, it's nice to just have a Mommy and Mason weekend every once in a while too!
