AnchorMOM: Calgon Took Me Away!!

AnchorMOM:Calgon Took Me Away!!

Posted: Updated:

All of our efforts with "The Bully Project" landed us a prestigious award from our parent company.  And that landed me in Richmond for an overnight stay. Which meant…I had an entire bed to myself for 8+ hours of uninterrupted sleep!  Ahhhhh!!

I forgot what it was like to go to sleep without having my son lay across my neck like a mink. I don't remember what it was like to sleep without my daughter digging her feet into my ribs.  Somehow, in a California King bed, my husband and I end up with about 2 inches of bed.  Don't get me wrong, our kids start their bedtime in their own bed.  But by the 2:00am mark, I hear the pitter-patter of little feet making a bee-line right for our room.  My son even tries to move me over…it's like he's saying "Gosh mom, move over and give me some room." That boy is freakishly strong too…he somehow manages to steal my beloved pillow every single night.  My sweet, angelic daughter is apparently dreaming about playing in the World Cup because she kicks…and kicks…and kicks.

My husband ends up leaving to seek refuge in another room…so I am there to fend for myself. 

So there I was…standing at the end of a giant hotel bed that looked like a big, fluffy cloud. It was my holy grail…my Graceland.  The clock said 8:01. And that was the last thing I remember. It was like Christmas, my birthday, Mother's Day...all rolled into one!

The next day I was back to my two dimpled kids and their infectious laughs…and like clockwork at 2:00am, my Calgon moment was over. 

But you better believe…I went online and ordered those hotel pillows. Nico won't get his hands on these! lol
