Sanity Break: Lunch for two


Once every month or so I do a Mommy and son lunch with Landon. I know this would not seem like a sanity break, to go to lunch with your fourteen month old, but it is. Lunches out with girlfriends become frenzied, trying to entertain the little mister and have a conversation. It's hard to talk about anything when you're asking someone constantly; "Do you want another Cheerio?"
Lunch with just him and me feels like a little vacation. I give him my full undivided attention, take him to a place that is loud enough to be kid friendly, but nice enough for me, and we have a ball. A funny thing happens too, I fall more in love with being a mom and with him. That is Fabulous.

Cute. I took my boys out to eat last night while daddy was at a work function. It was a little stressful but we survived with no tears.

So true! What a nice afternoon and what a cutie-pie date!

Important to note that lunch with Mom is equally special to little Landon. No doubt, the beginning of a life long tradition.
