I have not always been the most patient person on the planet, and being a mom has really taught me that my timing will not necessarily be Jude’s timing, and I’m happy to say that I really have learned to be more patient (at least with Jude!). Unfortunately, our timing was off today! Jude and I went to Hershey to visit one of my dearest friends and her son. He slept the whole way to Hershey, and I was hoping that he would sleep the whole way home. He ate shortly before I was ready to leave for home, and I was waiting for him to make a messy diaper before we left. However, I guess I felt like it was time to go, so instead of waiting for this to happen, I went ahead and left, and you guessed it! The messy diaper occurred during the drive, and there was some serious wailing during the end of our car ride-to the point that he got so wound up that it took quite a bit of effort and time to get him calmed down. Sigh…I try not to be too hard on myself, but today was another reminder to slow down and be patient! Thankfully some cuddling with Daddy made my little boy much happier after our traumatic ride home!
Our time in Hershey was delightful! It was so wonderful to see my friend, and I love the idea of our boys being friends just like we were. It occurred to me while we were there that Jude really hasn’t been around many children-hopefully he isn’t too shell shocked when he is with the other daycare kids on Monday=) It will be fun when the boys can really play together!
I was very much in need of some girl talk, and I’m so glad that I had that opportunity to see Karen and Levi before I went back to work!
Love these two!
