Things that go BUMP in my head

On the 28th of this month, I will have been married to my awesome husband for 6 years. I feel like a veteran. Hee hee!




So, to commemorate our anniversary, we thought it would be fun to go out of town (sans children) for a few days.


As I made reservations (back in early May), and confirmed with our ever-so-willing babysitters (Jenny et al), I couldn't WAIT to blow this popsicle stand! WOO HOO! I was counting down the weeks....


Well, our scheduled departure is for this Friday afternoon.


And then, I couldn't help it (really I couldn't), but I started thinking about my two precious entities that are currently sawing logs in their room (which faintly smells of Eva poo residue).


It went a little like this:


*Sniff*


I love my children...How can I leave them for two days???
What if they miss me??
What if they can't sleep??
What if they won't eat anything?What if someone comes and tries to kidnap them all???What if they get hit by a car??What if they have to go to the hospital?What if? What if? What if????
And it finally came to an end this morning at 5:30am when I decided (and Jeremy agreed) that, heck! we don't need to go out of town! I quickly cancelled our reservations. So we are going to make a day trip instead, and probably just hang around Provo. Yay! Maybe it will be easier to leave Josh and Eva when they are older...? Or maybe I am just a hormonal freak, because I didn't have a problem leaving both of them last year. Of course, that was an overnight trip...but still...
I had better tell Jenny.

I must admit that my jaw dropped when I saw you had canceled your reservations. I have never been away from my kids for more than 24 hours and I would love to remedy that fact.

Anyway, happy anniversary and enjoy your day with your hubby!

As much as I appreciate the worries of a Mom... I too was mildly disappointed to see that you canceled your reservations. I would enthusiastically sit on anyone who tried to stop me from taking a couple days away from my responsibilities...
Well, more power to you! Have fun on your trip and update us when you get back! :)

Wow, now I feel guilt for disappointing people. :P And yes, this has kept me up, mom, and I blogged it very, very early this morning.

I'd a done the same thing. I'm an overly paranoid freak, too. Stinks sometimes, but what can ya do!...cancel plans, I suppose. I'm actually having the same issue about some days in August I'm supposed to be gone. I hate Worry.

it does get easier when they are older and it helps to have people you trust watch your precious gems. Mine are much older now and i know that they can take care of themselves and they won't let any one hurt them.

When Victor and I come up for the baby blessing next month we are doing so without children... :)

Dara. I know I only have one kid, an almost 2 year old, but I could NOT leave her for a weekend trip. MAYBE overnight if she was with my mom. You just don't even worry about it.
