Just a little thought...

This is my blog and I will blog my thoughts if I want to :o)
My Alaskan Cruise...I am SOOO very happy and excited to get to go on a possible once in a life time trip. But...my husband and girls are not going with me, as I am going with members of my husband family and we are saving money to go on a Disney Cruise or Disney trip next summer. I know that I will enjoy myself but will also miss my family. We are a very close family and are rarely apart so I know that this will test all of us. I have mentioned the trip to Skyler (5) and she is not ok with it. The thought of me being gone for any amount of days made her cry and beg to take her. I had to end the conversation and not bring it up again. I will be gone for 7 days and can't tell her that because I know that she will have a complete melt down. I am so gratefully that my husband is willing to let me go and keep the girls for the week. Ok....on one had I hope he sees what all I do on a daily basis with the house and the girls but on the other had I don't!!! I am worried that I am going to come back and he is going to be ready to run away! :o) I hope that him and the girls will take that time to bond. The girls are both mommy's girls because I am the main caregiver and I hope this will help all 3 of them. I love my family and I know that we will all miss each other.

That is awesome! I know you will enjoy yourself! You shouldn't feel guilty.. us moms need a break too! The girls will be fine.. I'm sure they will miss you, but they will survive! And, no, you don't want to know about the daily routine. When I went to NYC, I think Fred forgot to brush the kids teeth. About a week after I returned I asked him to brush their teeth and he said, "they brush their teeth?" Umm.. Yeah, I didn't have to ask if they brushed while I was gone.. I think I got the answer. But, they survived! And, I'll let him do it again in a heart beat! ha!
