on my mind

This is her new face.......something wonderful she picked up at school :) She especially loves doing this when I am asking her to smile for the camera!! 

These are the silly faces that I am going to miss next month when my hubby and I take our first vacation together since our little ones were born. Is it terribly strange that I am actually dreading the trip more than I am looking forward to it?

Don't get me wrong.....the idea of one whole week away with my husband sounds divine in theory......no dirty diapers to change, no putting anyone in time out, no temper tantrums, crying fits, etc...... BUT the other part of me is missing them like crazy before we have even gotten on the plane. I simply can not imagine being away from them for that long!!! My mind begins to fill with worry and anxiety, and I must stop myself and simply PRAY. Pray that my children will have a wonderful time while we are away, pray that they will not miss us too much, pray that my husband and I will savor every minute of our time alone, pray that I will be a better mommy and wife when we return, and pray that God will take away my anxiety and simply allow me to put my trust in HIM.

I know how extremely blessed I am to even have this as a worry (poor me, stressed over taking a week-long vacation to Costa Rica), but this is a major step for me on the Mommy Journey.

Oh you will have a blast and the kiddos will be fine!! Rick and I went to Kauai for a week when Landen was about 8 months and I know it's hard but in the end he was fine and we had a BLAST! :) So relax, have fun and the craziness will all be right there when you get back!! Hugs!!
