Weekend Away!

May 6, 2010

For the last few days, Bella has been acting very different from her normal cheery self. When I pick her up from school, she is super happy & excited, sometimes if she’s having too much fun, we’ll stay for a few and let her play more. We get into the car, pop some Barney into the dvd player and go on our merry way. Then we get home, have a snack & juice, and watch one of her shows on the big tv. This is where she seems to change. She gets very clingy & fussy about nothing. It gets worse once Daddy walks through the door. Now that Eric is getting home a little earlier, I am trying to get dinner done and ready by 6:15, which is extremely hard with a 3 year old calling “Mommy, Mommy, MOMMY!!” every 5 seconds! Then when Daddy’s home, she just start crying erratically for no reason at all. She can’t even tell us why she is crying.

Eric’s mom was going to watch her all day Saturday & Saturday night because we are going to Aaron & Tin’s wedding. Well, Mom called me yesterday and asked me if it was okay if they pick Bella up before her nap at school Friday and take her to South Texas for the weekend to see her great grandparents. I thought, “Wow God does work in mysterious ways!” and promptly said “YES!!” I honestly could handle a short break & I think Bella could too! Well, now Eric is off tomorrow, so he is going to have Bella in the morning & then take her to his parents around lunch time. We have Friday & Saturday night to be 20-something’s again! Ha! Trust me, I will be calling often to check in on her, and missing her terribly, but I think it’s a good thing.


Friday night, Eric & I are having date night. I am surprising him with where we are going, and since he sometimes reads our blog, I will post about it later. Saturday I am getting my hair done early morning, then heading to the wedding! We plan on spending most of the day there and catching up with our old friends from college. We’re picking her up at 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning for Mother’s Day & heading to breakfast at Magnolia Café. Then heading to church, where they are having a salute to mom’s by showing a slide show of all the church mom’s and daughters. We’ll be finishing the day off with dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse with Eric’s family. I will be stopping by our local Catholic Church as well to light a candle for my mom. It should be such a great weekend!!
