C-Dub’s Plans

So C-Dub calls me from work and asks:

“Are you off Labor Day Weekend?”

In my new found calmness, I did not say, ” I work EVERY weekend fool!” Instead I calmly answered yes. ( I’m so proud).

He then goes on to inform me that he wants to take the baby to Mississippi to see his mom that weekend.


I mean, three days without my baby?????????

Yes, yes, I sleep all day Sunday, and always complain about having no rest time on Saturday, so this would definitely give me that.

But I just want a couple of hours, not the whole dang weekend!

But, seeing it from his point of view, I can understand.  He is always looking for something for he and Pookah to do on the weekend that gets them out of the house.  This certainly does it. But I worry of course.  Simply because I am Pookah’s mommy.

Will he be Ok when he doesn’t see me the next morning? And the next? And the next? Will he cry?

Will C-Dub guard him well against the wheat that is in EVERYTHING? Including the roux in the gumbo I know his Momma is going to make him?

How will he handle being Pookah’s only caregiver for almost 72 hours?

He thinks he’ll  do fine because he has him on and off for about 24 hours by himself while I work at night or while I’m asleep in the bedroom upstairs.


I know, I think I’m indepensible here, and I’m not.  It’s just that I worry that HE is taking on too much.  But I know I’ve got to let him do this.

I know I do.

So even though I’ll be miserable all weekend long, Pookah will be happy with his Daddy.

He’ll have fun with his uncles.

He might even let my mother in law hold him.

And I’ll try to look at the  positives: I won’t have to cook.  I will get a nap on Saturday.  I will actually get to sleep late on Saturday morning.  I might get to clean up the house and it stay that way for three whole days.  I’ll be well rested for whatever work throws my way.


We’ll see if I remember these points next weekend.

    Just think I get a break I get break. If you can, plan something that weekend with a friend or by yourself so that you won’t think about it as much. *note* I am the same way especially for that long but I want to be uplifting

    I think its a great idea! A nice long break for you and some father/son bonding time for them. If it was me I’d be like “can you leave now?” HA!

    You’ll be fine. Pamper yourself while they’re gone. 🙂

    LOL! I was just talking to my husband about this. I cannot stand to go a day without seeing my son – much less 3 whole days! I know I am being ridiculous. And I would LOVE a break. But I would *prefer* it be 6 hours at a time, ya know?

    I had those same worries when I had to leave hubby with the toddler for a few days. I quickly got over them when he sent me a video message of my baby telling me ‘night night’.. and although I thought baby would notice me gone, when I got back home and saw him, his facial expression said ‘oh. there you are…’ LOL

    Bad mama checking in! *lol* I absolutely LOVE when my mother or father keep my son overnight!! He’s a doll and I love having him around, but not having around is all kinds of peaceful and quiet. Woman, let C Dub do his thing and RELAX RELAX and RELAX!!

    I know this will be hard. Maybe it will help C-Dub appreciate your hard work a bit more?

    Awww! You are such a good mommy! I know you will miss him, but this trip will be great for the both of you! You get to rest and relax all weekend (other than when you are working), and Pookah gets to spend quality time with his dad and do “man” things! The weekend will fly by! You’ll see!
