Matt has been on a project for the last 4 months or so that has been pretty crazy. He leaves around 5:30am and doesn't get home until 7 or 7:30pm and then he works 3 out of 4 Saturdays a month. So I've been trying to plan some little fun things to do with Niall on Saturdays that don't involve too much effort for my lazy pregnant self.
And thus arose 'blanket breakfast Saturdays'. Most people are spending time with their families on Saturday mornings, so it's not even really a good time to try to go meet up with other people. It's just a little peaceful one on one time for Niall and me.
We pick up a bagel and a donut to split from Dunkin Donuts and bring it to this quaint little garden/park behind the railroad tracks, where we can listen to the birds and the trains and it's the absolute perfect temperature because it's 7am and the sun hasn't had a chance to come out and scorcher us.
Niall has actually started to understand that this is our little activity and he goes right up and sits down as soon as I spread out the blanket-- something Niall just doesn't do (sit). He waits for me to pull out the yummy goodies and we sit and eat and laugh and then run around the garden.
I used to dread the days when I'd wake up on Saturdays and Matt wasn't there, but now I actually look forward to our little weekend morning picnics. Although, I'll admit, it would be much more fun if Matt were there... but these types of activities are more my thing and not so much Matt's thing anyway. In other words, if I woke Matt up on a Saturday at 7am and told him we were packing up and going to a park, I think he might cry. So for now, Niall and I are just enjoying some mommy and son time.
Niall loves your votes!
