Quality Time with the Boys and a Glucose Overload

A very rare Saturday post!

Hubby had to go out of town for a couple of days this week so I was relegated to solo parenting. It’s been a long time since I’ve had the kids all to myself. I was excited to do some fun stuff with them, have fun and play.

Too bad this week was not a great week for me. I’ve been feeling sick, tired, and just all around miserable. I wanted to do something fun with the kids and felt awful that I had nothing in the tank by the time we got home from work/day care. I’m sure the glucose test I had to do that day didn’t help. I’m still having flashbacks. Yuck!

Grossest beverage known to man.

So I did the only thing I could think of:

I took them to Boston Pizza.

Yep, even Fit Mom’s take their kids to restaurants and let them indulge in fun foods. *gasp*  Especially when the thought of cooking turns their stomachs. I was a bit nervous about trying to manage two active and energetic monkeys on my own in public, especially my 2-year old who loves nothing more than to socialize, climb and destroy things. And scream when he’s not allowed to do any of it. But it actually turned out pretty good. A few minor melt-downs (and a wonderfully loud restaurant to drown it out) but for the most part, we had a good time together. I love the fun, low-key moments with my kids, where we can talk, laugh, tell silly stories and just marvel at how big my little boys are getting. I know that in a few months, life will get crazy again so I just love that we had that time together.

The only picture I could get while trying to rally the kiddos!

The greasy food was pretty awesome too :)

Now we prepare for a busy weekend of fun, games, and racing! Marathon relay is bright and early tomorrow. Wish us luck. I know I’m really going to need it!
