Brayden's first sleepover

Jeremy planned a little get away this past weekend. We simply went into Reston Town Center, stayed at a nice hotel and dined at a nice restaurant. He knew not to travel far from home because we had not left Brayden before.

Just one night.

I just had to pack up the boys. Carter and Luke with my parents and Brayden with my sister. The amount of gear I packed was crazy for just one night. Brayden requires a few too many things, I packed the minimal amount.

I have never left Brayden for a night. The most had been 5-6 hours at our house. My stomach was in knots and at the time I would not admit it but I was nervous about leaving him. I left my sister 4 page of notes; all about his medications, feeding pump, etc. I called a few times and talked myself out of calling a few more.

Brayden did fine, as did Carter and Luke. Jeremy and I had a wonderful time. It was nice to have uninterrupted conversation, eat dinner and dessert. Jeremy even took me shopping, I picked up a few was relaxing.

I cannot forget to mention that Gander, our lab, stayed with Jeremy's parents who own one of Gander's sisters. Apparently they had a nice time too!

I am sure it was hard to leave for even just one night away, but I'm so glad you and Jeremy could do that! Marriage needs to be taken care of and nurtured as much as these little lives we're trying to take care of.

So happy you were able to go out, even if it were just for one night. It was well deserved and then some!
