The day has finally come! In a few hours we will be headed to Dallas for our first trip without kids in………about 5 or 6 years. I’m having some anxiety and guilt issues that have been building up for a while and I’m sure it will lead to a big tear fest when we drop Carter off and leave him. Sure he will be by his Grannie’s house, but what will he do at night when it’s time to go to sleep and he’s waiting for his mommy to give him his sippy cup and play “1,2,3” (which we made up and he LOVES) before putting him to bed. What is he going to do in the morning when he wakes up and I’m not there to say, “GOOD MORNING MR. CARTER” in a really annoying, high pitched voice?
What will I do without all of this??!! How long will it take me to miss kissing his little cheeks, seeing his smile, and hearing “EEEEEEEEEEE” while he watches Barney. How long will it take me to miss Vanessa’s never-ending stories, constant questions, and silly jokes. I know Vanessa will be fine. She’s older and she’s been on her own mini-vacations before. Carter, on the other hand, is going to miss us!!
This is going to be tough, but I hope I can relax and enjoy myself.
Dallas, here we come!
