Coping mechanism.

I need one.

That isn't a bottle of wine. 

G heads to his grand parents (ben's parents) for the first time by himself this weekend.  We head on an "adventure" this afternoon to meet Ben's mom for the exchange.

Tell me it's ok.  He will be fine.  He will not break every antique in their house.  They will make him wear a coat when it's 30 degrees outside.  He won't forget about me.  He won't climb out of his bed and lose his mind and then use his tiny toddler hands to escape captivity and get lost.

Goal... get the big boy room ready.  Goal, see a movie (on my bucket list), eat dinner, sleep in, nest and organize without chaos and disorganization.

Who wants the dogs?

Where is Jcrew again?

Life without Thomas--sounds fascinating. 

But he'll be ok... right?

It sounds perfect. He will be fine - alive by the end, and, in all seriousness, that is all that matters. Its good for you guys and good for him. You will cruy when you pick him up. You will not know what to do with yourself after dropping him off. We have a 4-day, 3 night trip coming up - never left the girls for that long...but I can have a cocktail on the plane:-)Have a blast! Cherish it - becasue leaving two is harder (for the babysitter)

You will miss him, he will miss you, and all of you will be FINE. Probably more than fine. You'll feel relaxed and relieved for the grown-up time, and he'll bask in the doting of his grandparents. We LOVE the weekends when the littles are at the grandparents!!!

Elizabeth said...

Even in-laws. I mean, it's ONE WEEKEND - he's not going to boarding school at their house... :)

I agree with Heidi. He'll be alive and that's pretty much all you can really ask for. ;) I promise you, you'll be fine about 20 minutes after dropping him off. The leaving part is the hardest. Enjoy yourself!!!
