Everyone but me. :(
I can't take the time off work and we didn't want the kids to miss out on the fabulous vacation, so I am going to be home alone. Sounds great, doesn't it? Then why do I feel so crappy? I am going to miss my kids so much! I have never been away from my kids this long and it's breaking my heart that I am going to miss 5 days of their lives.
I have a 2 page list of things that I am going to get done, though, so I will not be bored. I have cleaning and painting and moving furniture and carpet cleaning and organizing to do. Hopefully, I don't pass out by the 3rd day from exhaustion! :)
So, in order for the kids to not forget me...and to give them a little laugh...I put together a little book for them. This is kinda what it looks like:
If Mommy finds out that you are not behaving, or listening to Daddy, she is going to look like this. Please don't hit or kick or yell or bite or pull hair or talk back or get attitude with any of the adults. Always listed to Daddy and make sure you hold hands crossing the street. Make sure you brush your teeth at least once a day, but try to remember to do it twice. Eat some fruits and vegetables, not just candy and french fries. Don't pee on the carpet. Make sure you stick together and keep an eye on one another. Always buckle up.
Then, the back page has 5 kisses on it...one for each of them, to hold them over until they are home with me.
Here's hoping I survive and get my list completed.
And if I happen to get a pedicure while their gone...so be it! :)
