London's First Day of School

So today was London's first day of school. He goes to a church preschool program on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 9am-12pm. He is only gone for 3 short hours but can I just tell you that IT IS GLORIOUS!! Does that make me a bad mom? If it does I am completely willing to accept that.

Those brief hours that he is gone gives me time to get some things done around the house. Time to update my blog, catch up on blog designs, and sleep clean the house and it actually stay clean for longer that .2 seconds, grocery shop without having to sing or dance around the store for toddler entertainment purposes (I still do it but at least I can choose the song now) , and *gasp* take a shower without a certain peeping tom reminding me that I missed a spot every few seconds. So yes, at the risk of sounding like a bad mother, I will again rejoice and say... IT IS GLORIOUS!!!

Here are a few pictures of my little man on his first day of school. Be prepared, the cuteness is blinding. :)
 Nothing comes between a boy and his Angry Birds, not even the first day of school!

 Seriously people, how can you stand the cuteness?

His backpack is bigger than he is!

A few months ago (and probably a few months from now) I would have celebrated the first day of school with a fun dinner for London and a nice bottle glass of wine for me. However, we are now celebrating pregnant style. My cravings for Snickers are pretty much gone but my one and only craving from when I was pregnant with London has returned. ICE! No No, not just any crushed ice it has to be Sonic ice. I usually just go pick up a large cup of water with extra ice, pay my 65 cent, and munch on it for a few hours. But since today was so special, I decided to treat myself to something equally as special. 
Yep, that is a whole BAG of Sonic Ice. I'm in HEAVEN! 

I really should be going, I have a lot of cooking, cleaning, and baking to do while London is at school. 
Yeah right, who am I kidding? I'm actually going to take a nap! DON'T JUDGE! :)

I love it! Also, I think that all Mommies deserve some respite. Watching a kid all the time is exhausting. Not to mention women, even if they work full time, end up doing the brunt of the housework. You need some adult conversation and adult time!

Oh my goodness that 3rd picture down! He looks just like mama in that picture. :) He is adorable!!
BTW: I want a big ol bag of sonic ice!!!

You crack me up. I feel the same way when Jack is in school. Isn't it amazing how quick our young children can learn our phones and Angry Birds???

On the contrary, having time to yourself (and enjoying it) makes you a BETTER mom. :) My DH took the kiddo grocery shopping last Friday night so I could get some things done. Who knew I could accomplish so much in just two hours?! It was divine!

Don't feel bad - sometimes just babysitting is hard work for me (so unfit!) - being a mum is the job of legends! P.S. how can I stand his cuteness?? ummm...I can't! Ohmygoodness those curls and little chubby cheeks!! He is to die for!!
