play dates aren’t really for kids


I don’t know how other moms manage to get through the day, but when I notice I’m teetering dangerously close to the edge of mom insanity, I like to pack up and leave the house for a play date.

Now, Jack – who belongs to my friend Kim – and Liam aren’t much for actual playing right now, but I know they appreciate it. Don’t let those looks on their faces mislead you. They’re bff’s (bros for life) whether they like it or not because Kim and I plan on spending a lot of mom time together. It’s not every day you have a friend to go through your entire pregnancy with, and I can’t imagine not sharing the rest of our kid milestones together, as well.

I put together a list of other little blessings that help me get through the day:

  1. The smell of Christmas trees (note: we don’t have our tree yet, but I lit a candle).
  2. The sounds of Liam entertaining himself. Music to my ears, I tell you!
  3. A homemade cup of coffee with peppermint mocha creamer, which I found completely empty in the refrigerator this morning. I’m not saying that it wasn’t me who put it back empty, but this morning I definitely blamed my husband.
  4. That first bite of a brownie fresh out of the oven.
  5. The moment the UPS man pulls up your driveway with the package you’ve been waiting for. I practically mauled him on our front porch.
  6. Pumpkin bread. Anytime. Anywhere. Period.
  7.  Snuggling with my weiner dog, Roxie.
  8. Watching endless episodes of Bones on Netflix. Who’s with me on this one?! Anyone? No? Ok.
  9. Sitting by a warm fire.
  10. Thick and gooey PBJ sandwich on Wonder Bread at Midnight (yeah, that happened last night)
