Since becoming a mom to my Chiquitin de Mami (aka Evan) Boo and I don’t travel as much. We went to Jamaica, mon, after only 4 months of coupledom, and after Negril we hit up St. Marteen, da club and salsa socials. Boo and I were this couple sans bebe.
That was PBS (Pre Baby Sujeiry). Now, I’m fucking tired ALL OF THE TIME. Boo is also exhausted although he sucks it up like a soldier that’s battling the War on Adulting. I’m a terrible fighter and, instead of finding the motivation to get off my ass and hang like before, I watch reality TV on our sofa.
Adulting: 1. Sujeiry: 0.
That’s why I was so excited when Boo surprised me with a weekend getaway to a bed and breakfast in Niantic, CT. I have always wanted to go to a cozy B&B like the gringas from the ‘burbs but Boo often complained it wouldn’t be as fun now that we were parents. Ugh. Did I mention adulting sucks?!
Well, we did it. We went away with Evan and stayed at the Inn at Harbor Hill in Niantic, CT and had such a great time as a family. I wasn’t sipping a coconut rum beachside while Boo babysat a Jamaica Me Crazy cocktail, but I was just as happy thanks to the love of Chiquitin de Mami – and lots and lots of running after my toddler boy.
