Yesterday we celebrated my parent’s 35th wedding anniversary. My sister and I planned a big open house and a private dinner afterwards. Definitely not a place to have a 9 month old. Now back in June when we started planning this event I asked K and J if they would watch Gray for us so we could be baby free. Big step for me since the only people to watch G have been family, other than daycare (not that K isn’t family – she really is, but not blood). So on top of planning and prepping for this party I was also planning and prepping for Gray to be away for a day. It’s different then daycare, mainly because it was all day. Gray went to nursery at church in the morning, and then was off for his day with Auntie K and Uncle J, bath time and bedtime included. I had emailed K Gray’s care guide and a youtube video of how to set up his play pen, and we had gone through everything.
So between first and second service at church, after G had a clean bum and full tummy, we handed him to Kathryn and headed out to do the last minute errands we needed to get done, and even though I many have sent her a few messages on BBM, I was not worried at all about Gray.
They had a great day, and when we arrived to pick him up he was sound asleep in his play pen in their spare room.
