morgan's on her first trip without us.


Morgan left for Raleigh with her Honey and PaPa this morning, and they'll be gone for FIVE days.  My little sweetie is such a big girl -- she was so ready to go.  She didn't care that Mommy and Daddy weren't going with them.  The day before, I told her that she'd be getting on an airplane again.  She was so excited she didn't want to go to bed last night.  She is OBSESSED with planes, buses, and trains, all of which she usually gets a chance to ride at the airport.  I'm excited for her to ride all her favorite things, but I'm more excited that she'll get to spend time with her great-great aunt and uncle.  The last time she saw them was two summers ago when she was only five months old.

I was sad Friday -- I won't lie.  You mamas know -- it doesn't matter that your children are with loved ones who will provide them with the utmost love and care -- you still worry a little.  And then when it's hundreds of miles away, you worry a little more.  But I know she'll be fine.  I just sometimes feel like she's still a baby.  That she needs that storytime with Mommy every night.  That she needs that glass of water after we've tucked her in and turned out her light (totally her stalling method).  That she needs that talk at the end of the day about how her day went (where she also tells me who went to timeout -- sometimes herself -- and why).  That she needs her oatmeal just the way her daddy prepares it every morning.  That she needs the funny little routines we've established during teeth brushing time and bath time.  That she needs that time in the early evening where we burn off our leftover energy at the playground... or days after school where she wants to take all her books and toys to Mommy and Daddy's room and play on our bed (still trying to figure that one out -- I love it, though).  That she needs all of our little routines to function when all she really needs is a lot of love.  Which is why I have no need to worry.

So to get through my time, I'll be looking through my phone at all the pics we've taken lately (I haven't picked up my camera at all this week because I've been playing with my new favorite app, Instagram).









Awww, how I miss my sweetie already.  But you'd better believe I'm going to take advantage of this baby-free time.  She hasn't even been gone 24 hours, and I've gone to the hair salon, checked out a couple of yard sales, gone to lunch with DK and my SIL, and took a three-hour nap.  And I have four more days like this, and I'm debating on how I could use it.  I have the last few episodes of Grey's and Desperate Housewives on my DVR that are calling my name.  And there are always tons of blogs I could catch up on.  I could finally put up some stuff in her room that I've been meaning to put up.  Or I could organize my kitchen who is in need of some serious TLC.  And there's always my side of the closet that is just sad.  Or I can be super smart and get ahead on my grad school classes. Hmmm.  I'd like to mix work and play these next few days -- but if it's mostly play and little work, I won't feel bad!

Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
