They mean something different now. So much more than in my 20’s, when they meant going out all night hoping to meet someone desirable enough to actually go on a date with. It was so much work.
As a working mother of a young child, weekends are now like mini-vacations. It’s completely appropriate for me to act like a child. I can play hide-and-go-seek, play at the park, crawl in the sand at the beach and play with soccer balls. I also get to experience the growth of a young child and see things through his eyes for the first time, such as airplanes and birds soaring in the sky. These mini-vacations are quite spectacular! I hope all you you enjoy your weekend as much as I will.
