After a much need vacation, I am returning to the blog world! I was fortunate to spend the last week with my family on vacation. I will be the first to admit, I did absolutely nothing! I sat on the beach, read books, ate, and took naps. I did get in the water with Bug (my daughter), but she was glued to my husband Ben’s, side! These two were like peas and carrots all week.
Bug wanted her and daddy to swim in the ocean and walk to the inlet by themselves. She told me very clearly, “Mom you can stay here”. Awesome…right! Honestly, I didn’t mind. Bug and I are able to spend a lot of time at home together. My husband works long hours, so it was nice to see the two of them have some very special daddy/daughter time.
Here are some moments I captured:
The problem I am facing now is the “daddy detox”! Moms, you know what I am talking about right?!?! It is when your child spends so much time with someone and then when they come home you have to bring them back to reality! This usually means more rules and less fun time. Plus, it means mom is in charge again. Bug was incredibly bummed the morning Ben went back to work. She cried on the way to school and kept saying “I miss my daddy”. When he got home from work, she immediately asked him if he had to go back to work tomorrow. Bless her heart! Bug is such a daddy’s girl.
I am hoping as the week continues Bug’s “daddy detox” gets better. I know Bug loves me and we have our special times together, but she loves her daddy so much! I must admit too, that Ben is a pretty good hands on dad. I am grateful and thankful for that!
A few more days of routine and Bug will be back to normal! I am just glad a “daddy detox” is easier than a “grandparent detox”!!! The undivided attention, constant play, and spoiling aren’t fun things to detox a child from, but that is a blog for another day!
It is good to be back, but I might need a vacation from my vacation! We will see…so let the “Daddy Detox” continue.
