A Weird Feeling: Marriage and Pregnancy Post Baby #1

James will be 9 months this weekend. I have yet to be separated from my sweet, precious baby boy for more than a work day or a 2 hour date with Mr. Boo. The thought of leaving him over night with someone absolutely makes me want to cry. I know he would be well cared for, but I don't want to be away from him! I guess I feel like I'm already away from him too much during the week because of work (hashtag full time working mom problems).
Where are these thoughts even coming from, you ask?
Mr. Boo and I will be celebrating five years of marriage next year...5 YEARS! Jimmy wants to go on a vacation, of sorts, to celebrate. We have so much to celebrate in our five years (and 15 months of dating). I do feel it's important for us to get away and be together, just the two of us (we can make it if we try...anyone else singing the song?!)...especially after becoming parents.
One of the biggest challenges in my 9 months as a mother has been staying connected with my hubby. We have been on dates (thanks to the grandparents) but I always feel the need to rush back to James. I feel like I've been an awful wife and a mediocre mother. I know we need to make this anniversary vacation happen but there's one thing stopping me:

James will be around 16 months during the time we would be gone. Hopefully, he'll be eating real food and weaned off of breast feeding at that point.

Another bummer...we wanted to start to get pregnant after my race season is over with, late October/early November. There's no way I'm gonna be preggo on my 5th anniversary vacation! Therefore, if we decide to go away, baby making round two will have to be postponed by 6 or 7 months :(


Fast forward 3 hours from the time I typed the above:
 When we got home, Jimmy said he thought we just needed to pick a week near our anniversary and plan for family to watch James. I agreed, even though I know it's going to be hard!

The cool part? Jimmy said he wants to pick the destination and surprise me! SWEET!!!! I thought that sounded like an excellent idea! Looks like Baby Boo #2 won't make an appearance for a while longer.

  1. Surprise destination-sounds amazing :-) I know it will be hard to be away, but sounds like a great time!
