We as a family just need a little break from the "norm". This week hubby has decided to take us to Wildwood, NJ for a day! We are leaving Tuesday to sleep over in a hotel right in front of the beach and walking distance to the boardwalk, and we will spend the day relaxing on sand building sand castles and working on our tans, and then walking the boardwalk and going on rides for some fun! Maybe a nap in between??? I would love to pick up some of their infamous Salt water taffy & fudge. Mmmm there is something about that jersey sea water that makes that fudge amazingly great!
Of coarse I'll wind up packing way too much, and eating way too much, and getting way too much sun... but I guess I'll have to settle. hahaha!!!! I cant wait for our little trip!!!

And Now for the Bitter sigh.......Cory is very very independent baby. A little too independent for me to be honest. He goes to bed alone in his crib :-( Not my choice, his & he has been holding his own bottle for months. The only thing i have left of him is when he falls down and gets hurt he wants his mommy. How sad is that for me.
He is my last baby. We are not having any more babies and while watching my nephew this week who is 5 between ending preschool and starting summer day camp I have realized that I am absolutely certain that I do not want anymore children!!!! (not that I have a choice, hubby was snipped back in October.) If we ever do decide to adopt a baby it will not be for a long long while!!! Which brings me back to......WWWAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH he is my last baby and is not so much a baby anymore... How do I deal with that???? I am trying to keep him a baby and he fights me tooth and nail (except he doesn't have any teeth) to become a little boy instead.
They all grow up in their own time I guess, and I guess his own time is happening faster than I would like to admit!
All in all this week is much much better than last week and I am glad we all survived!!!
This is a whole other topic I wish not to discuss until my next post~!
