See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Ok, so I know it's still pretty early in her pregnancy, but get this one -- Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are vacationing in Paris right now, and I'm more than a little bit jealous. (Bakeries with chocolate croissants on every corner? Yes, please.)
According to a source who talked to US Weekly, Kim and Kanye plan on staying in Paris, "for a week just to chill. It's a little babymoon!"
A little babymoon. Complete with plenty of shopping, taking in the sights, and eating at super fancy Parisian restaurants and not worrying about one single calorie.
(Sounds amazing -- where do I sign up?)
The popularity of babymoons really seems to be on the rise, and I only wish someone had advised my husband and I to take one back when we were expecting our son seven years ago.
Granted, we did take a trip with the whole family to Bermuda when I was about four months along, but that was to celebrate my grandfather's 80th birthday. It wasn't about us, so the purpose of the trip wasn't to savor our time together as a couple before our little guy entered the picture and changed the whole concept of vacations forever.
Don't get me wrong -- I love our family trips. Once in a while my husband and I even manage to sneak away for an adult vacation without our son, but it's still not exactly the same as it was before we had him.
Even when we go away by ourselves, we're always thinking about our little man, which can be kind of distracting when you're trying to relax and clear your head.
If either one of us had known just how much our lives were really going to change, we definitely would have booked one last vacation together during my pregnancy -- even if it were only for a long weekend.
But then again, hindsight's 20/20, so even if we had been smart enough to take a babymoon, I'm not sure we would've truly appreciated it. Isn't it funny how you don't realize how precious your alone time together is until you don't have it anymore? (Or at least not for a good 18 years or so.)
Are you planning on taking a babymoon? Where are you headed? (Can I come?)
