I'm out of town for the first few days of this week at a conference for work. A conference that I really wanted to go to, and had to fight for. I've been looking forward to it for months. But then the day came and I didn't want to leave.
I realize that I'm a mom now and leaving my kid and husband is REALLY hard. I had to do my best not to tear up because I didn't want Emily to get the wrong impression... but, I'm telling you, it was really difficult, and I know that my voice cracked a few times. Especially when I told her that I was going to go "bye bye for a few days" and she said, "I'm fine. Mommies come back".
She's been watching "Daniel Tiger" recently and that's one of the songs/themes "Grownups come back"
She melts my heart. I love her so much.
And, of course, I'm missing Jacob, too. ;)
