It's about time

Cody is no Mama's boy. No sir-ee! He's a Daddy's boy for sure. As for me, I am a boy's mama. Seriously. We get a babysitter maybe once a month, and halfway through the date I tend to miss him. SAD, I know. What's funny is he never misses me. I used to try and get my nails done to have "alone time" but then go too cheap. So occasionally when we forget something for dinner ("Honey! Where is the sour cream?" myself "Oh...I think I ate it, I'll be back") I'll run to the store completely alone. I forget how nice it can be, but at the same time, I like his company.

This weekend Kevin's family is gathering at the cabin but we are not invited seeing as how I am days away from delivery. My SIL Julia called the other night and offered to take Cody with them to the cabin for the weekend. At first I automatically was like "Uhh are you sure?" but then I was like "hmmm might be nice", so I told her I'd talk to Kevin about it and get back to her. I found myself freaking out. "WHAT IF HE FALLS AND DIES!?". Yeah I know, a little irrational. We finally decided it will be our first and last chance to be kidless for quite some time. So we were in.

I laugh because I am packing his bag getting excited to scoot him out the door, but at the same time, I know I am going to cry. How pathetic am I??

I'm a little jealous, but completely know what you mean. I have never left Hallie, and I keep telling Grant that we need to get out and leave her with a sitter for a few hours- but I know once we do I'll miss her like crazy, and I'll probably be the one who has a melt down and cries. Hope you have a great, relaxing weekend!

Love the new blog look! I know what you mean about leaving the kiddo. Sometimes when we think about leaving our boys to get out on our own for a bit, it's a little worrisome. :) But man I wish it was easier! How are you feeling? I miss you! Please come out and see me soon. Like today.
