Days Away From Gio

This past Saturday, Erwin and I went to New Jersey to drop off Gio at my parents house. Gio did extremely well on the drive- he slept more than half the way, and after he woke up, he was really calm in his seat. Originally we were going to come back Sunday night, but we decided to come back Monday morning so that way Gio could warm up easily to my family and their home.

It was been a little harder than I thought it would be to have him away from me, but at the same time it makes me so happy that he’s spending time with my parents and my family in New Jersey. I know for a fact that he’s being spoiled with so much attention and so much love.

I’m actually very proud of how well he’s doing. When we were in New Jersey with him, he warmed up quickly with everyone and he stayed playful with everyone once we left. We had some minor issues when I would drop him off my sister-in-laws house, like nonstop crying, so I was concerned but there hasn’t been any problems at all. He sleeps really well, he’s been eating extremely well. I’m really proud of how he’s done, and I might just do this annually so he gets to spend that time with my parents which to me is really important.

Now, as for me, it’s just been really strange not having him with me. I miss him a lot. Having him away from me and him not being under my care has opened my eyes up to things. It’s made me realize how I care way too much about little things, while all he wants and needs is me to be there sitting on the floor just playing or running around with him. I can put cleaning aside, cooking aside, even my studies aside for a little to fulfill his wish of just having me there next to him.

Today is my first day on my own. Erwin went back to work, so I decided to jump on here and write before I start studying for me final Biology exam. He gets out a little earlier today so I’m excited to just hangout with him and watch a movie.

Chuck E. Cheese fun 

For a few days we didn’t have any power at home, and of course those days decided to be gloomy and rainy. Keeping Gio entertained got hard those days since there was no option to go outside, like a park. We would go to the library so I could do some school work, read to him, and so he could watch his shows but he’d get very bored. So, on Saturday I decided that I would take him to Chuck E. Cheese and it was a success. 


We have taken him previously, but he couldn’t really play ’cause of how small he was, he’d get fussy, and a lot of people overwhelm him. We went at around 11am, and there were a decent amount of people- it definitely wasn’t crowded which was good. Chuck E. Cheese was the only place I could really think of to take him to and play, and I’m happy I did because he had so much fun. 


We were there until almost 1? The best part, I got $10 worth of points and he didn’t even use them all. Maybe a little over half. He went on the clock multiple times- which I’m so happy he loved ’cause I feel like that one can be a miss or hit. He also really liked the submarine, a little motorcycle that they have for toddlers, the Simpsons soccer game, the little bowling like thing (lol, don’t judge me) and funniest of all, he loved the Fast and Furious game. I really wish I could upload the video so you guys could see him ‘driving’ it’s the funniest and cutest thing- he even changed shifts! If you follow me on Twitter, the video is available to see! Go watch! Lol 

It was the best watching him play that day. It really showed me how much he’s grown and how much more he understands now too. 

Let the Chuck E. Cheese fun begin! Lol
