Kyron's Off To Grandma's House...What Are Mom And Dad Going To Do? ( Wink Wink)

10:41 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  Yesterday, Kyron got to spend a special afternoon over at his grandma and grandpa's house!  Becky's parents live 5 minutes away from us ( unfortunately my Mom lives in Edmonton, which is 3 hours away or she would probably want to take him every day, lol) which is great for family dinners and visits etc.  Grandma wanted to spend some time with Baby Kyron, so she arranged to take him for the afternoon yesterday, which would allow us some time to do whatever we wanted.  While we welcomed the opportunity, Becky and I were initially at a loss as to what we would do as we have totally planned every trip, car ride and daily event around the baby! 

  Then it dawned on us.... what is something that we have not been able to do together since the late stages of Becky's pregnancy?  ( I am sorry, but I should say during MOST of her pregnancy!) As it is now 3 weeks since Kyron's arrival, we figured it would be ok to do this together as it is natural for married couples that are in love.  Personally, some people say there are more important things to do but I do not particularly agree with any of them.  We are both adults and have NEEDS people. In fact, before Kyron came into our lives we found the time to do this almost daily.  At the very least, it became our Saturday or Sunday afternoon tradition. 

Like a pair of randy schoolkids, we got excited about our plans for the afternoon.  The answer that came out of her mouth was exactly what I wanted to hear!  I got a little *ahem* excited just hearing her say it! 


Sleep. 

( Get you minds out of the gutter people!)  

Yes sleep!  We had these grand plans about dropping Kyron off and having three hours of uninterrupted sleep together.  Wow, things sure change once baby comes!  But once you have a baby in the house your plans usually get altered.....so no sleep for us!  We ended up going to a children's furniture store and buying more stuff for Kyron, followed by a trip to the pub for lunch and then shopping for picture frames. 

Hot Date?  You bet! I got to spend the afternoon with my beautiful wife! 

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

  4. Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

    So true. I totally wasn't even thinking the other one. Yep, after a kid or two? Women know better!!

  5. Debbie said...

    Ha! After four kids, I knew immediately what you were talking about. My mind hasn't been in the gutter for years.
    Stopped over from Meme Monday.

    Oh my....I was totally in the gutter. I think I'm more dissapointed you didn't get sleep then what I was originally thinking. But shopping is a close third to the other two.

    Careful now, sleeping is how babies are made.

    To be honest, my wife and I have fantasied about doing the same thing. Just need to pawn little miss on someone for an afternoon.

  11. Tara said...

    Ha!! You had my mind in the gutter. I sure wish my family lived closer so my guy could have a little Mamaw time!!

    It's sad when you reach the point where sleep sounds more sexy than sex, isn't it? ;) But yes... I'd have to say SLEEP, wonderful amazing, sleep...

  13. Genny said...

    I think it's great that you already got some time alone!

  14. Chelle said...

    I was thinking SLEEP but hoping I wasn't the only one who uses alone time with the spouse to rest up! Glad you had that time alone!

  15. Working Mommy said...

    Isn't it great when the grandparents can cover for you?!?! Too bad you guys didn't get to...cough, cough...sleep at all ;)

    This is a great post! Hope you enjoyed your time off. Free babysitting is the best!

  17. Holly said...

    Oh how I miss living by grandma and grandpa. Too funny when they would take my son for us that is all we would do too. There is nothing better than sleep after you have a baby!

  18. Kelly said...

    YAY for inlaws living nearby...(most of the time! ;D)

    I really, really like the name Kyron. I snooped on some pictures. What an adorable baby!!

    I used to daydream about getting a babysitter for a couple of hours just so I could take a nap. Ahhhh.
