…the gynae said, at my 16week check-up. And I had a little bit of a sad moment (I was secretly hoping for the pigeon pair and was convinced I was having a girl!), but then the gynae told me that one of the benefits of having same sex kids is one high school drop off and pick up, hehe. And when I sat by myself and thought about it, I was even more excited at the prospect of DAD AND HIS BOYS spending time alone together. Whether it be on the soccer field, go-karting or even just at the movies…boys time was definitely part of my future visions. Alone time for mum…spa days, sipping on a glass of champers and just chilling while my boys were out bonding. Well guys…IT’S HAPPENING TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The school are having a camp out for dad and the kids. No mums allowed!
When we first got the notice, I thought it would be great for Ethan and the hubster – not only for the bonding time, but also to camp for the first time ever. This is something that I know the hubster has been looking to since the time he knew he would be a boy father. Well, of course, this mama is not one to pass over an opportunity (especially when she can get a break), so I e-mailed the organiser and asked whether siblings who did not attend the school were allowed to come with. The answer was – of course, siblings and cousins, as long as dad looks after them all. The hubster is in his element. Growing up camping, knowing how fun it is, he cannot wait for the boys to experience it. Yes, it’s a far cry from real camping, but I’m sure it’s going to be fun for them all.
I’m a bit worried about Riley and how he’ll be at sleep time, but if he’s freaking out too much, I’ll just pop up to the school and pick him up. At least he’ll enjoy the time before with his dad and brother and his bestie will also be there with his older brother and father. The hubster is convinced that he’ll be fine.
So there it is – MY FIRST FULL NIGHT ALONE!!!!! To say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement… 🙂 🙂 🙂
