The hubby and I had my 3 yr old nephew and 16 year old sister all weekend! Now we reside in a one-bedroom high rise apartment in downtown. It's very trendy and we love it however it's not meant for 2 adults, 1 teenager and a toddler (especially a rowdy boy tot)!
I planned a lot of "get out of my apartment" activities. Kids Expo Saturday morning, lunch with extended family, birthday celebration at BFF's house and grocery shopping. We didn't get back home till almost 9:00. After showers were complete we were all asleep by 10:30! Can you say exhausted?!
Sunday we slept in--I rolled out of the bed at 9am (which is late for me). As soon as I opened my bedroom door I heard a little voice yelling "Aunnie is that you? I'm up"!! Wow, Really?! I hadn't even stepped foot out of my bedroom yet! ha ha Well good morning Pooh-I heard you and I'll be right in there. So I started some laundry, cooked breakfast and we all sat around the table a chatted a bit. We all dressed for the day, packed up the kids' luggage and we went to an outdoor festival all day then dropped them off at 5:30.
It was a very long weekend with lots of noise and lots of patience tested! We had a great time with them as always. I can't lie though it was very nice to drop them off and come back to my quiet oasis. Awwwwwwwwwwww!
I know as a mother I won't be dropping my kids off on Sundays but I also know I would not be residing in a one bedroom apartment either! Space is definitely going to be needed to maintain my sanity! Ha!
