I hadn’t had my hair cut or colored since the weekend before Thanksgiving so Tuesday’s appointment was looooooong overdue.
Lucky for me, Vanessa offered to help me out by watching Connor while I took a few hours for myself.
(I didn’t take any pictures during the actual babysitting so this is one from when Shawn and Vanessa visited at the hospital.)
I got a picture and an “All’s well!” message from Vanessa halfway through my appointment so I was able to sit back and relax and not worry. Not about Connor, mind you. About whether he was treating Vanessa nicely or not.
I got a chai tea latte on the way to my appointment, made an exchange at Kohl’s, grabbed some lunch, and popped in the grocery store. Those four hours I had to myself made such a difference (IN my head as well as on), and I am grateful to Vanessa for watching Connor. I so appreciate that I have such wonderful friends who I can count on.
