My Babies

Today I dropped off my babies.

It is their first day of Mom's Day Out at our church.

Last year I was their teacher. However, do the fact that I have CANCER, I opted not to teach this year. I just didn't think I would have enough energy.

So now I have 5 whole hours without my babies.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't cry a little when I left them.

I did.

But did they? Nope. They were totally fine with mommy leaving them.

Can you believe it! Not one little tear.

Those little stinkers!

They are supposed to be sad when mommy leaves them! Maybe they are used to mommy leaving them since I have to go to so many Dr's appts.

Or maybe Kyler is just growing up! All I got was a wave and a bye mom.

I better get a big ole' kiss when I pick him up!

The fact that they didn't cry? Just means your love has given them a whole lot of self confidence. They aren't scared. They are excited! That is a marvelous thing!

Thinking of you lots.

My kids cry? I am miserable. My kids don't cry? I am miserable. This seperation stuff is hard for us mommies!

Oh, that's gotta be rough!!! I know my little Eva will do the same thing when she goes to preschool next year. I'll be crying from heartbreak and she'll be skipping away happy as a clam.

My mom had a verse on her fridge that said raising children is like flying a kite. You let the string out little by little, knowing that some day that beautiful creature will break the string that binds you and soar high on their own.

Ya, the little verse never mentioned how hard it is!!!!

Hope you are doing alright. Thinking of you and praying for you often!

I think the independence movement is hard. First you just want a moment of peace, and then you notice that they can survive with out us. SO sad. And hoping you got that huge hug and kiss! Not to mention gigantic waving hello when they first see you!

Aww, I hope you get a nice big hug and kiss when you go get them!

I hope they both had a wonderful day (even if it was without you!) and you got that big ole kiss you wanted. Glad Phase One of Kick Cancer's Ass is drawing to a close soon and on to Phase Two. And really, why can't the insurance company just approve for you to give yourself the shot? How hard can it be? Stupid insurance companies.

Have a great week kicking cancer's butt!

I love what Lisa said and I completely agree with her. Your kids know that you will always come back for them and that they have nothing to fear. I bet you'll get huge smiles and lots of hugs and kisses when you pick them up.

My kids are the same way. We leave them with family for short vacations and they don't even blink an eye. It does make me feel a little bit sad. But my mom assures me that it is because they trust us so much that they know we will come back and they are secure enough with that fact and with themselves that they can enjoy time spent away from us. That sounds about right--at least that is what I choose to believe. :)

Doesn't is suck that they grow up so fast? But it means we're doing a good job and they will be successful and independent and not need to have their hands held when they're adults, so it's good....but it still sucks!

I hope you enjoyed your free time a little...It's a very precious thing!

Here's to being almost finished with the worst part!

Hope you got those kisses!
Thinking of you!
