Yes! It’s finally Friday! This is the day of the week I’ve been looking forward to since…well, all week! Not only is it Friday, but it’s also payday. I’m going to live it up tonight, have some drinks with friends and go club hopping all night and then I think I’ll do it again on Saturday. Yes?
No. That’s not my life anymore. That was before Mason.
So what are my real plans for tonight and the rest of the weekend, you ask? The truth is I’m not sure. You’d think with me being so excited about Friday I’d have alot lined up but I don’t. I’m just excited for a weekend spent the majority of the time at home with my 11 month old best friend. I’m excited about a little extra sleep (if I’m lucky). I’m excited about possibly getting some laundry done and finally having some time to wash my hair. Most of all, I’m excited about spending some quality time with my little one.
As a full-time single mom and grad student, I don’t get to spend very much time with Mason during the week. My weekends are a blessing and I cherish them. Weekends give me moments that if I lose, I can never get back again. I will seize these moments in the company of my son and embellish them with the beauty that is Mason.
So when they ask, “Can you get a babysitter for tonight?” The answer is probably yes, I just don’t want to.
Singly mommingly yours, M.
