Adult Snack Time

Bam-Bam has issues with his tonsils and gets tonsillitis quite often. This time, he was sick for almost a full week causing Mommy-Care to be in full effect. When he finally began to feel better, I celebrated my new freedom with a trip to the grocery store.

Even when he's sick, his snuggles are top notch.

Awwww yeah…I know how to party.

After buying what felt like the entire store’s contents, I loaded up my Old Lady Cart and backpack before turning down a side street to walk around. It may sound silly, but I was relishing my brief freedom even though I was hefting a week’s worth of wine, two 1.5L bottles of sparkling water, and a 1L carton of multi-vitamin juice on my back in an excellent pack mule impression. As I walked, I took note of a playground to explore another day, a toy store I definitely need to check out (there was a giant dragon backpack in the window!), and a tea shop before stopping and getting a quick snack I wouldn’t have to share.

Cafe CK knows how to make blueberry tart. Mmmm...

It was glorious. Great coffee, even better cake, and I didn’t have to worry about anyone running off while I wasn’t looking…or spilling anything in their efforts to steal a bite from my plate. Thanks, Saturday afternoon, for giving me a warm diversion from the monotony and a great excuse to eat cake without sharing.
