First Baby-Free Weekend in almost 5 years

Holy guacamole, I can’t believe we’ve never had a real weekend away from babygirl in almost 5 years!

I’m not saying I’m trying to shirk my parenting responsibilities or anything cause I loveeee my princess, but a girl needs a break every now and then. I also think it’s super important for parents to remember who they were together before they became Mom & Dad.

It’s actually by way of an interesting turn of events that we scored our free weekend, and it happened to fall on my off Friday. JACKPOT.

We slept in Friday morning and I caught up on a few hours of work before heading out to get fresh hair cuts and eat some delicious food at this new healthy eating spot called Fresh Kitchen.

After that, we finally got to see Black Panther.

I felt like we were the last ones to see it, and have been avoiding all articles, comments and discussion about the movie because I didn’t want to be tainted before watching it.

Movie was great.

Saturday we spent most of the day at our marriage class, the real reason we got a kid free few days.

I thought the class was great; we talked about communication, finances, conflict resolution, personality types, parenting styles and natural family planning to name a few. Honestly probably every engaged couple should have to take something like that, get you to think about the bigger picture and are you guys on the same page.

Later we met up for drinks with D’s cousin.

We basically stayed out all of Saturday.

Sunday was for church, house cleaning, at-home movie watching and me practicing my calligraphy.

Though we missed her a lot and felt weird doing things without her, I think in the future we will need to look at planning more kid free weekends so baby girl can spend time with her family, and we can spend time as a couple. It was nice to just get up and go and do whatever we wanted with our staycation. And I know babygirl had a grand time getting spoiled this weekend as well. She didn’t even want to come home. 🙂
