- I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire! Let's talk and learn how a blog can expand your business.

Robby doesn't have school today because of teacher in-service meetings. In the absence of looming appointments, I decided to pack up the boys and head to my Mom's for the weekend. Robby was over-the-moon to be able to visit his Nana and play with his cousins for a few days. My Mom seemed happy to see him and Timmy, while I reveling in the anticipation of a solid night sleep.
I am not sure my Mom truly understands how much I appreciate her assuming nighttime Timmy duty when I visit. Sleeping for more than three hours feels like an absolute luxury. I no longer dream of going to a spa to relax. Since having the baby, my definition of relaxation has been redefined to mean not waking up every few hours to change diapers and prepare bottles.
The next few days will be spent running a few errands, but primarily just relaxing and talking. I have a long list of things that need to be done at home and, lacking the energy to tackle them, it seemed prudent to just leave for awhile so I don't stress and worry. I need a few days to just rest and recover from the ear infections and strep throat. I have no doubt that in another day or two I'll be back to my normal self. Until then, I think I just need my Mom.
