I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Hello, Weekend!

Yesterday was a blissful day with the children. Blissful, I say.

Today...anything but.

Tomorrow, Big Daddy and I are taking Maggie & Ellie to my mom and dad's house and then we're heading to the beach. We'll be gone less than 36 hours, (I'll tell you exactly how long we're gone on Monday) but I am SO looking forward to it.

I'll be honest and admit that while I need a break and Big Daddy and I need a little time without the children, I do not want to leave them. I was awake at 4:00 this morning worrying about leaving Ellie overnight for the first time and leaving Maggie when she knows that we're going to the beach. I totally trust my mom and sister, but I don't like being away from the girls. I worry about something minor or major happening to one of them or my family letting Maggie watch too much tv or them feeding Ellie chocolate. I keep telling myself that they are in the best of hands since they are with the people that we want to care for the kids if anything ever happened to us, but it's still very hard.

This is the overnight trip that has been two years, seven months and two days in the making. No, we haven't been planning it for that long, but that's how long it's been since we've been away overnight together...without children...except for the hospital stay before Ellie was born.

Have fun! I remember the first trip we took away from Andrew. I cried the whole way to the airport and teared up in the terminal. I felt like the worst mom on the planet for leaving her baby. They will be fine but you will still miss them like crazy!

I'm the same way (I've also had a very trying day today ugh) but as much as I need time away, I ache leaving them.

yay for you!!! Remember, we take better care of our families when we take care of ourselves too! Too much tv and chocolate won't hurt them in one weekend. :) (unless there is a chocolate allergy) It's been since March 20 of 2009 since I've had an overnight away from Caleb. I need it bad!! Can't wait to hear how it went! Don't spare the spicy details! haha!!
