Well, our no-labor Labor Day was wonderful. We got to spend it at the pool (belongs to friends of my in-laws and we've been going there on holidays since Bennett was a baby! 2010, 2012) and for the first time, I didn't have to schlep the pack-n-play, hang blankets over windows and fret over whether my baby was going to fall asleep there or not. What a relief!! You deal with that stuff while you're in that phase and you cherish their sweet baby-ness. But once they're older, being away from home all day gets so much simpler and it sorta makes me want to celebrate. Don't get me wrong, when Channing turns 6 and I only have big boys in my house, I will probably bawl like a baby and watch our home videos of them as toddlers and eat a pint of ice cream every night (only because I don't like wine) for a week straight. But for now, I'm quite content to be done with the all that blasted baby gear.
I stole this next pic from my MIL. The kiddos watching Poppy make homemade ice cream! We had fresh peaches on top and it was amazing.
