My weekend started with one of these, which was awesome! It made me excited for the summer months ahead!
Halfway through this past weekend I started getting texts from daycare moms about a stomach bug going around. After dealing with Hand, Foot, Mouth, I prayed Magnolia wouldn’t catch the newest spring bug.
Saturday morning, after running to Target and Kohl’s with Magnolia, I headed to OrangeTheory for a workout. It was an awesome workout and I was so happy with how my knee felt afterwards! Positive sign!
I went back and forth on whether to take Magnolia to Richmond for the DC Divas game Saturday night, but with the looming threat of a stomach bug and 6 hours total in the car, I decided to stay home in Maryland with Magnolia. The Divas won (yay!), Magnolia didn’t get sick, and I enjoyed a quiet evening at home after Magnolia went to bed.
Sunday morning we relaxed at home and then ran to Costco after Magnolia’s nap. I had a big work event Sunday afternoon/night, so I got dolled up (wore my new Lularoe Amelia dress) and headed downtown. Our end of year banquet was amazing and it was nice to go into the city for a bit.
This morning, I just knew Magnolia wasn’t feeling well. It was bound to happen! She woke up crying, which she never does, and had glassy eyes. Neal and I decided it was best for me to stay home with her and to get some work done while she napped. Thankfully (knock on wood) she hasn’t had the same symptoms as the other kids, but she was clearly not feeling well today. Her morning nap turned into a 3 hour nap on mommy, which I didn’t mind one bit.
After Neal got home from work today I headed into the city to see the premiere of Mother’s Day with one of my friends, thanks to Pro Flowers. It was nice going out to dinner (at Shake Shack) before the movie and having some time on the metro train to write this post and answer a few e-mails. It took me back to my grad school/pre-mom days.
It was a cute movie, but I was surprised by some of the story lines. Granted, I’m so much more sensitive, having lived in DC for 12 years, but I just didn’t find the comedy around race and same sex marriage that funny… But, that’s just me. Mother’s Day definitely had its cute moments and I liked all the Pretty Woman references.
Hopefully Magnolia will sleep great tonight and will be her spunky self again in the morning! Hardest part of being a mom is not being able to fix everything, especially when your child is sick. I’m grateful Neal took care of Magnolia for me tonight. I definitely had mommy guilt, but I knew she’d be fine and that it was ok for me to get out of the house for a bit.
