Hey Everybody, This is Xenia's Hubby, Chris. About a month ago, she came to me with the biggest grin. So I was like, "What's up babe?" She told me that she had this big opportunity to go to a conference called Niche Mommy and was chosen to be a brand ambassador for Huggies. I was happy for her because she seemed so excited to go. The thing was the conference was going to be in New Orleans which meant she would be away from our six year old and four month old sons for a couple days. Most often parents would jump at the thought of going on a vacation without their children but I can honestly say my wife & I are not those kind of parents. We love doing stuff with our kids so I knew it was going to be hard for her to accept the fact she would have to be away from her babies for a couple of days. So I assured her that the kids would be fine. I told her that I would take some days off from work to watch them myself and she was much more relieved. There are times when I tease her about her blogging but it makes me happy knowing that she is doing what she loves to do.
The time she was away in New Orleans, I really enjoyed the time I spent alone with my boys. We watched movies together, played Legos with Duke, laid around with Omar reading him books, being silly and making him laugh. We even went on a lunch date at Duke's favorite Japanese restaurant, Niko Niko. It was kind of weird without Mommy being home and we were all missing her. Duke would get so excited when she would call on Facetime. The day she came home, Omar smiled so big, it was great.
It was fun having all that Daddy time with my boys but we were happy having Mommy come back home.
