ok, i know ben is not my baby. he’s 2-1/2. but he’ll always be my baby, and he left this morning to go to Colorado with my mom. to the airport. on an airplane. then a two hour drive up the mountain. with out me. just my mom, dad, their cat and ben. for four days. we had a photo shoot in the driveway before he left. thankfully before i really started crying. i miss him already, but know he will have so much fun. and lyle and i are going to meet them in four days. just four days.
so far i have….
gone for a long walk with lyle
called to see if the plane landed
picked up all the toddler toys floating around the house
called to see if they made it to the car
bought paint to repaint ben’s room while he is gone
called to see if they made it up the mountain
painted my toe nails (but not ben’s room yet!)
called to see how night time went
had dinner at a friends house
called to see how ben was doing this morning…you get the point.
