Even though it was gray all day and poured all night tonight, we had one of those weekends that I totally live for:  it was sunny, laidback, yet productive.

The weather on Saturday? Perfect.  I think it was the first warm day of the year that warranted flip flops.  We headed into the City on Saturday to attend the Go Green Expo.  I won tickets, so we had the chance to learn about new and upcoming green companies, services and products, some of which I’ll post over at The Next Kid Thing.

Go Green Expo

The show was packed with all sorts of green and sustainable products, including organic vodka (!), Eco Brew, organic baby clothes, green makeup and Hybrids.  We even witnessed some dancing gorillas.  (Only in NYC!)

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing and cleaning, things that we haven’t had a chance to tackle together in quite awhile.  It’s so nice to get things done in the morning and then enjoy the park twice in one day.  Having been so busy with the new site, and Jeff working late hours, I live for the weekends.  “They” say Spring in NYC is magical.  I have to agree, especially Spring weekends like this!

The magic is gone and we’re back to reality now.  Jack woke up screaming at 1am and after trying to let him soothe himself for quite sometime, I had to bring him out into the living room to calm down.  Lucky us, “calming down” took several hours, thus Jack and I once again slept in the chair.  It turns out, the culprit for this week’s night wakings could be attributed to all 4 canines coming in.  good times!  Good Lord, this kid has a lot of teeth!

As hard as it is trying to comfort the kid in the wee hours of the night, I try to savor those moments.  He’s so sweet and commands frequent hugs and kisses, when trying to fall back asleep; he’s such a snuggler, I can barely handle the cuteness.  I have to remind myself that one day, probably in about 16 or 17 years (if not sooner) he’s not going to want to have anything to do with me.  Until then, I’ll whine about the lack of sleep and totally savor these sweet snuggly moments with my little momma’s boy.

I hope everyone had an equally enoyable weekend, but with a lot more sleep!
