see ya in while crocodile

Why do I find it so hard to let Lulu stay over night at her grandma & grandpa's for a few days?
The days leading up to her "departure" I already start missing her.
I'm such a worry wart sometimes.
Now that she is gone, it does feel a bit strange without her here, but I have to is a nice little break.
Even though I was working and not even home all week it was a quite nice not to have to rush home and worry about bed & bath time etc.
Or it was also nice not having to tip toe to bed or whisper as to not wake her up.
Or to be able to have a nice leisurely meal with big daddy and actually be able to have an uninterrupted unhurried conversation.
I'm sure she is having a blast and when it comes down to it, it's probably good for all of us to have little mini breaks now and then.
That being said, I am really looking forward to picking her up later today and smothering her with kisses.

I feel like I can totally relate. Next week we are going to NY for a long weekend... sans Jack. This is the first vacation (without Jack) we've ever taken. We left him overnight when he was about 4 months old when we went to a memorial service for a friend... but that's about it. Anyway, long story short, I've been having these rushes of excitement followed by a little dread at the thought of being away from him. I know I need this... I just can't help but miss him already. Isn't that funny?

We've booked a mini-break for the end of the month, and I am longing for it and not looking forward to it for precisely the same reasons.

Such a catch 22 these little ones leave us in! I was just debating whether or not to have Samantha stay at my mom's this weekend, and going through these same feelings and then I read your post. But like you said we all need a mini break! Even our kids too!

i know what you're saying. we finally had our first night away from the girls back in feb. it was long overdue and so enjoyable, although we found ourselves talking about our two little butterflies most of the time.

It's so hard to prepare for it and actually say goodbye, but I have found that once you have one overnight/trip under your belt - you feel braver in the future. :)
