My son slept in until 9:30 this morning! I could stop this blog right now and all you parents out there would understand why this is so wonderful. Mind you, if you have read the earlier blogs, he has been getting up around 6:30ish in the mornings. I woke up at 8 this morning, and just laid there thinking...hmmm, he's not awake yet. I laid there until 8:30 when I finally decided to get up...I ate breakfast, showered, and sat down for awhile, all without having someone else to take care of right away. It was so weird, but wonderful. Finally, around 9:30, he woke up and came out of the room. He looked at my bedroom door, which was closed for a sleeping Dave, then looked at me down the hall, back at the door and then just laid down on the floor. He was just not ready to start the day today. He was so out of it. He had a late night last night playing with River while we were at lifegroup...so he didn't get to bed until 9:30, but still...I couldn't believe he slept that long.
After he finally decided to be awake, we stopped by Starbucks and said "hi" to our friend Becky, then did some shopping at Target. Then I headed off (sans Noah) for my lunch date with my childhood bestfriend Jen. We were best friends in the second grade and somehow we have now both landed in Lafayette for at least the time being (she is a grad student). We had Olive Garden...my favorite place to eat. So, now I am loaded to the gills with soup and breadsticks, have come home and the boys are gone. I'm not really sure where they are, but I hope they're having fun. :-)
The Wellner's are coming over for dinner tonight and Dave is making pulled pork. It turned out really well the last time he made it so we are hoping for a repeat performance.
So, here's to a beautiful day outside and a well rested mommy. :-)
