THREE MORE DAYS!!

and I am officially OUTTA HERE!!! For the first time in my kids' entire life, I will be gone from them......yeah we're talkin nine years in the making here. I am sooo nervous and already having a hard time sleeping just thinking about it. NO ONE can take care of them like I do but their daddy will do PERFECTLY FINE and the kiddies will be alive and well when I return. I have soo much to do before getting on that plane that I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. What to pack? What NOT to pack? Don't forget the camera battery charger...or the cell phone charger....what if I forget something major? What if I get lost at one of the airports? What if any of my planes are delayed?? I only have a few short days to spend with new friends in Florida and I want to make sure I take advantage of every relaxing moment! I just can't wait to put my feet in that warm sand and just sit and soak it all in. Relax and not hear the pitter patter or better yet the STOMP STOMP of all the feet in my house or the ongoing MOMMY MOMMY MOMMY can you get this? Mommy can you do this?? Mommy can I eat?? Mommy I dont wanna go to bed....all the fun that comes with kids! I am hoping and praying that I come back refreshed and with a new perspective on life in general and a little more patience would be nice as well. LOL!!
OK enough of the rambling on...what I wish for most is that the kids enjoy the daddy time and constant spoiling I am sure....and that I just put my fears to the wind and enjoy every minute of my first ever break away from being a mommy!!

Have totally not been scrapping hardly at all so really dont have much to share in that area. I am getting back in the groove but April has been extremely busy for me! I know one thing for sure....this Bo Bunny paper and its' color combo is sooooo lovely as are the pics of Averee!

To the real issue...
you are right no one takes care of them like you but all will be fine while you are away. Just don't ask too many questions and enjoy your much needed and deserved get-away!

just like Melanie said, just have fun. I know it hurts to leave them the first time. I thought DS will be hurt so much but no, It was me who has terribly hurt. but there are times we also need that much wanted rest.

Hugs to you dearie.

Just remember you need this vacation to be refreshed and gain new perspective and zest for life....and you'll be an even better mom when you get back because of it.

Have a blast!!

It is very hard to leave but this is a good thing for all of you. You will miss them like crazy and feel teary when you talk to them on the phone but you will also have the time of your life with your scrappy friends, some sunshine and a little freedom. Do NOT feel the least bit guilty, please. You deserve it and everyone will benefit from a refreshed Mommy!!

Well I don't have kids but I know that you'll enjoy yourself and that you'll come back so refreshed and you will have missed them so much you'll just be excited to see them!

Dolores said...

Oh Michelle I love your layout. As far as your kiddies they will be fine. Just because your going away doesn't mean you stop being a mom, you need your mommy break. You go and have a great time. I can't wait to see your new tan. LOL

You're right that NO ONE can take care of them and love them like you can, but everything will be fine! And, dad needs bonding time w/ the kiddos too :)

I hope you enjoy your trip and have a great time of relaxation/fun!!
