So. My last day of work before Glitter arrives was last Wednesday. That is because Rosh Hashanah started that evening and ended on Friday. I was obviously hoping to have a baby by now, but I don’t and realistically where we are at right now she is coming this week. What would have been an ordinarily long four-day weekend is now part of a longer lead-up into my maternity leave.
By Friday, we felt like it was Sunday and now that it is actual Sunday night, I am sort of in disbelief that tomorrow is actually Monday.
Like the last two weekends, we didn’t make any formal plans for this one because we didn’t know what our life was going to look like. Unlike the other two weekends, we knew that this one would be the last as a family of three. So we did our favorite weekend things. Sprinkled throughout with one toddler who had his first daycare cold (which happened two weeks later than we thought it would!) and was on some sort of hunger strike that resulted in one trip to urgent care five minutes before closing. This is real life!
On Saturday morning, we went to Bellecour’s bakery to pick up some treats and then walked down to Wayzata Beach where Critter played on the playground, spied on the people walking their dogs, and ran back and forth over the marina bridge.
We formally introduced Critter to TV and his delight in the Netflix show Spirit (it’s about a horse) was so beyond what I could have imagined, that my only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner. He spent half of the episode cuddling, wide-eyed and in awe of the fact that horses were galloping in our family room and the other half loudly neighing at the TV. I know that this is a phase that will pass, but it was too cute for words, really.
It was A Nice Weekend.
