Time For Me

I have always loved seeing all of the photos that parents post of their kids headed off to their first day of school. A lot of kiddos started back to school or MDO this week and I have enjoyed all of the cute back to school pics so much! Campbell is going to MDO again this year but ours doesn't start for another 4 weeks. This year Campbell has to sleep on a nap mat. I don't know how in the world that's going to work out but everyone swears it somehow does. I'm not very optimistic about it but we'll see how it goes!! We have to provide nap mats so I ordered Campbell's last week and it came in the mail a few days ago. I love it!!! I think it's adorable.
I laid it out on the floor for Campbell and he immediately got on it. He definitely likes it but getting him to actually nap on it is still questionable. I'm going to keep it in the playroom a lot these next few weeks so he'll get used to it. I need to get him on a better nap schedule too. He usually doesn't take a nap until 2:00 but at MDO I think they put them down around 12:30 so I need to try to move him up. He'll easily adjust. He usually just hangs in there with me because I'm out running errands until 2:00. He's always a tired errand running sidekick but he's a trooper!
My Mom and Grammy popped up to see me for a few short days this week. I absolutely love having them here and they're coming back really soon to hang out again. It makes me so happy to see how much Campbell loves all of his grandparents but watching my Grammy with him especially warms my heart. He wanted to sit in her lap yesterday morning to watch Mickey Mouse and I loved watching him cuddle with her. My Grammy has always been one of my closest friends and I just love watching her with my baby.
My Mom took off yesterday and shortly before she left she suggested taking Campbell with her for the weekend. At first I thought no because I've never been away from Campbell for more than 24 hours and the thought of being away from him for that long made me sad. I thought about it for a little bit then decided it would actually be nice to have some "me" time. I looked at the weather forecast to see if it would be sunny out and when it said yes, that kind of sealed the deal. Because as we all know, I love to lay by the pool and get a tan. So I packed him a little bag and sent him to Pops and Gamma Camp.
Campbell will have the best time so I'm not even worried about him at all. I'm not so sure how I'll do though! As of yesterday I was fine but we'll see how it goes. I am going to try to enjoy my Kara time although I'm not sure if I'll know what to even do with myself! Sleeping in, the pool, and no time crunches seem like a nice way to keep me entertained. Stay tuned!
