If you scroll through previous posts, you'll notice that I'm wearing sunglasses in about 95% of my outfit pics. This omnipresent accessory is an essential wardrobe element for a quite a few practical reasons. Of course, the most important reason is that sunnies mask the ginormous puffy bags under my eyes that are caused by keeping a tiny human alive and happy.
On to this week's post...I was without my sunglasses security blanket in these photos because *GASP* I was well-rested. We were in Florida last weekend for my mother-in-law's 60th Birthday Bash. During our visit, my son took full advantage of having a pool in the backyard and was consequently wiped out by the end of each day. It was our first trip with this kid that we did not want to stab our eyes out after enduring multiple sleepless nights. It was glorious to have 4 consecutive nights of real sleep AND Grammy coverage for early morning wake-ups.
If you're missing the sunglasses, don't worry. They should be back for the next post. We're home now which means the under-eye bags have returned in all their glory. Perhaps I should consider them a badge of honor that should be worn with pride, marking me among the ranks of sleep-deprived parents everywhere. But probably not.
