Crazy mom

The other day I wrote a post about the rough week Gibson and I were having.  One of my sweet friends read that post and texted me to see if she could take Gibson off my hands for a bit while I did something without him.

I obviously said yes.  I love Gibson, but I definitely needed a break.

So yesterday morning I took him over to her house and went off on an adventure by myself.

I ate an Egg McMuffin!  In silence!

I went to Walmart and bought Gibson some $2 shorts and I didn't have tiny hands trying to grab the hanger!

I went to Aldi and actually looked at the food they have there.  Usually I rush out because my boys don't like browsing.

And then I went to Goodwill, where I found a brand new sweater for Danny!  Hooray!

It was SO NICE.  Except I have this weird thing where I feel really guilty when I go out in public without Gibson.

I mean, it's really weird.  I feel like people are judging me for not having my baby with me.  Because OBVIOUSLY they can tell I'm a mom.  And what kind of mom goes shopping by herself????

...one that needs a break to stay sane, that's what kind of mom.  And also the kind that doesn't want to deal with screaming children while she's shopping.  I don't judge other people for not having children with them when they're shopping, so why would they judge me?  I don't make sense.

But I still feel the need to let people know I have a baby for some reason.  If I start talking to someone in line, I slip in the information that I have a baby.  Or I smile at another mom in the baby clothes section and tell her how cute her baby is, and how my baby isn't with me because he's playing with some friends.

I'm sure they all think I'm crazy.  I can imagine the conversation she had with her husband:

"I was just looking for Billy's summer wardrobe at Walmart when a crazy lady came up to me and was like, 'Oh, you have a baby!  I have a baby, too!  He's just not with me.  He's somewhere else.  Your baby is very cute!  Are you going to buy those shorts for your baby?  I bought these shorts for my baby.  I'm a mom, too.'  She was crazy."


If you ever see me at the store without Gibson, please just humor me as I tell you about him.  Because although I truly enjoyed having an hour without tantrums, I tend to miss him when I've been away from him for more than two minutes.

Even when he's screaming.  I have a sickness.  And it's called unconditional love.

But really.  You would miss this face, too!


Also, Gibson wanted me to tell you all to vote for his mommy's blog today by clicking on the banner below!  Because his ears are full of infections and so are his mommy's sinuses.  We're quite the pair, let me tell you.
