So last weekend (27th – 29th Jan) was the company ski weekend. It was also the 1st weekend which Walter & myself have to ourselves – without baby. So how did it go?? Well, good – i think.
Tobias spent Friday night, Saturday & Sunday with the Bachmanns & their 2 little gals, Samantha & Naomi. He loved it! He only asked for us the 1x time when Naomi would not let him play with a toy. & when we went to pick him up Sunday evening, he ran to the door, called out to us, gave us a hug & off he went to play. It was like we were only gone for a few hours to him. Narinda & Pascal both said he was a really good boy the whole time.
& what did we do while our darling son was playing with the Bachmanns? Well, we hit the slopes! Walter went snowboarding & i skiing. Actually, i took ski lessons for the 1st morning. Then more practice by myself in the afternoon. Evening was dinner with the company & then various people stayed to drink till late (or early in the morning – depending on how you want to look at it). Sunday morning was more slope-time for Walter – i planned to go walking on the mountain but a jammed cable car changed my plans & i spend most of the time riding the chairlifts & cable cars to get to another part of the mountain. Then lunch & then drive back.
How was it like to be without baby for so long? Well, to begin with when we got to our hotel room, i looked around & thot:”We should have brought him with us.” The room was nice & big, with space for an extra bed (cot). Then i found out that everyone else had brought their babies & kids with them this year. (Last year only 1 or 2 families brought their babies.) So again i felt maybe we should have brought him. & then on the slopes there was a nice kiddies area. So once again i felt maybe he should have been there. But at the end of Saturday night, i was beginning to feel that this time without baby, just the 2 of us, was good for us, individually & as a couple. So in short it started with apprehension & ended with a relaxing & refreshing time.
Of cos, i suffered muscle aches for 2 days now – only today it’s better.
