long time no post....

I last left off the day that hubby and I went for our overnight date!

I had a wide range of emotions while gone. I was thrilled to be alone with hubby, I was happy to have a break from the girls, but boy oh boy...I missed them something crazy. I think I must be abnormal. Most moms would be jumping off the ceiling crazy excited to have a break. I was happy, but I was sad at the same time, too. I kept telling hubby that I was "trying" to have a good time. I really was! I had the strangest feelings while away. I hadn't felt that way since I had Livvie.... When I was in the hospital having her, I had to leave Avery in the care of my mother. So, not only was I over the moon that I had a new daughter to love, I was also so sad that my Avery was not with me. That is just how this trip felt. I was so happy to be alone with my husband, but I was so sad that the girls were away....

Anyhow, we did some fun shopping, eating out, talking, holding hands, resting, watching some tv, reminising....ahhhh....it was great. We were away from the girls for 25 hours total...

And, what did THEY do while we were gone? Well, not miss us, that's for sure. Nana and Bapa had them busy with activities. They went for bike rides, to parks, out to eat, playing outside, to the pool, and numerous other things I'm sure. They had a wonderful time with them, and I think Nana and Bapa had fun as well.

It can be so hard. But you did great. Sounds like you and the hubby enjoyed your time together and the girls enjoyed their time with Nana and Bapa.

I have never been away from my little girl either. When our second baby comes in a few months, I will have to leave her and spend a night (or two) away in the hospital. My husband and I have talked about a trial run night for a sleepover at the grandparent's house. I think this is definitely more for my sake than for hers. I really, really, really don't like the thought of not being with her. It makes me sick to my stomach to think about and makes my eyes well up with tears. She's my little girl after all and I just adore spending time with her, as much time as I can. I don't even like going to events where I can't bring her. We're kind of attached!
