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 things...it 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!
