Time Out for Mom: Vacay!

This has been a long time coming. Hubby and I are leaving for vacation early in the morning! We have never spent even one night away from the kiddos since they joined our family, so this is going to be interesting for all involved.

Boy, does my mom have her work cut out for her. My kids are no joke- they take every ounce of energy out of me, and one of two things will happen for my mom. Option #1: They will be complete angels and my mom will wonder what the heck I complain about all the time. Option #2: They will be themselves and my mom will be super exhausted come Monday afternoon. Good luck, mom!

I can only imagine how M is going to feel about this. I think she's under the impression that Nana is coming for a weekend sleepover- with all of us. This morning she was saying, "No mom! Don't go, don't go! Stay here!" as I was leaving to head to the salon.

Good thing we're sneaking out super early, so I don't start sobbing before we even get out the door. Oh, there will be tears. As much as I'm looking forward to a long weekend away with hubby (Lord knows we need it), I'm a little sad about leaving the kiddos.

Well friends, enjoy your weekend. I'll have a full recap of our travels next week!


  1. I am so excited for you guys! The leaving is the hardest part but well worth the relaxation!! Enjoy!!

  2. I'm a new follower and know how it is when you and hubby want to get away. Hope you had a great weekend and found you on the Newbie Blog Hop!!

  3. How exciting, have a good time. We have never left our kids either since they were born so the first time we do it pretty sure it will be interesting.
