I fully intended to make a return to blogging with exuberance, but then my husband sweetly permitted Phoebs and me to make a journey to Camp Mops&Pops. And when we come to camp, Phoebe and I both get full camp privileges.
Phoebe, for one, gets undivided attention from doting grandparents and whomever we might spend time with. She also gets chocolate chip cookies, a slightly later bedtime, and entertainment in the backseat whenever we run errands. Errands may also result in a special treat to come home with, such as the sweetly stuffed Elmo that came home from the grocery store. Camp is always an exciting experience for the little!
But camp is also exciting for Mommy, who gets to turn back into a little girl at camp. Mommy gets to share critter-responsibility, and take a short break from household responsibilities. She also gets quiet, alone time when needed -- not just stolen moments during sleeping-baby hours. Mommy also enjoys chocolate chip cookies, a slightly later wakeup time, and fun special treats (such as the pedicure she is looking forward to tomorrow).
We wish Daddy could be here at camp with us, but we are grateful that he shared us for a special midweek visit. We will be returning home to him tomorrow, and while camp has been exciting -- we look forward to being reunited as a family!
But hey, what summer would be complete without a fun experience at summer camp?
