It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
Thursday was a very strange and quiet morning for me. I packed THREE lunches for my three girls and they all spent some time at “school.”
Yes, even E. We decided that it would be good for her to have a little play time two days a week with kiddos her age at church for a couple hours because she doesn’t really have any right now.
Thankfully, she was wanting some cuddles before it was time to go. No, no pictures with her and signs. I’m certain I would have lost it. Just a little snuggle time before we headed out the door.
I was so worried she was going to scream when I dropped her off that I didn’t even imagine things going another way. Instead, she walked up to her classroom door, reached up for the door knob and tried to walk in. She turned around, looked at me, then looked at the teachers and on she went. Never giving a second thought or crying.
I think that hurt even more? Crazy mom hormones, I’m sure, but I felt like in that moment, she didn’t need me and wasn’t bothered that I was leaving her. (It’s just because we have such good trust, right, that she knows I’m coming back?)
Of course, I did get a smile similar to this upon picking her up (this is actually from the gender announcement outtakes the other day).
And, she was also super happy to see her sister, too (just like this morning the other day). I think they miss each other more than they miss me!
What have you and your little “mes” been up to this week?
**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**
I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love. Please spread the love! And, I never mind the comments, either:)
