I got out of the house today!!! Can I get a woot-woot?
My sister, Sarah, came for a visit, and after dressing change, we left the boys watching... well, you know, and we went to Friendly Center in Greensboro. Osh Kosh and Carter's were having "blow out" sales, AND you could earn extra bucks for shopping in the future.
Now that I've decided Jonah can wear shirts with sleeves, I'm able to find a lot more stuff. HOORAY! It does my mommy heart good. I still can't get him anything with snaps, buttons or zippers on the front, back or shoulder, but at least I can get short and long-sleeved t-shirts, shorts, and pants. Some overall outfits work as long as the buttons are low enough that his chin won't hit them. The child has no neck!!!
Anyway, look for some cutie pictures comin' up with Baby Jonut rockin' his brand new clothes.
We were only gone for about two hours, but I felt renewed. We rolled the windows down, turned the radio up, and sang at the top of our lungs. For a few minutes I felt like "Patrice" again and not just "Jonah's Mom." Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being Jonah's mom... more than anything, in fact. But once in a while it is nice to be a kid again. But I missed him like crazy and was so ready to be home.
When I posted those pictures of him last night, I thought about an alternate title of "I mean I know I'm his mom and everything, but geez, this kid is cute." But then I decided that's a pretty long title.
Jonah slept like a rock star last night... from 9:30 to 4 and then 4:30 to 8:15. Suuuuh-weeet. It was Matt's night, so I'm hoping the same for me tonight. He went down an hour early tonight, so I'm little concerned as to what that means for our 4 am rendezvous. We shall see.
Better get to bed... just in case.
