Perception vs Reality – being baby free for the night

My parents had Baxter for the night last night and I missed him terribly.


I think people who aren’t parents have this view that when we’re child free we go wild. It’s quite the opposite, well, for me anyway.

We had Burger King for tea parked up in a carpark so we could people watch (my fav), I had a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine, made all the beds with clean sheets, did more washing and then wiped + vacuumed out the car followed by bed and Pinterest.


I was never a party girl pre-Baxter and I am sure as hell not going to start now. I generally get drunk once a year and that’s on my birthday.

I was tired by the time we dropped him off but there were jobs I’d been putting off for AGES so knew I needed to get them done while not having to worry about B waking up or needing my undivided attention.

For ages, I put off having him away for the night but I realise it’s healthy to have a break, we need to do it for our sanity and its good for them to be away from us for a night or two and means the Grandparents get some quality time while they’re still little.

Don’t get me wrong, I miss him like crazy and want constant updates but I trust my parents and know he’s in safe hands.

I’ve always been a nana and always will.
