A Much Needed Vacation

This Sunday the hubby and I are leaving to go on a cruise with some friends and family for one whole week. I am so excited, I have always wanted to go on a cruise. We’re actually going to be leaving on Saturday night to stay at a hotel on the way in order to save on parking and to have a more relaxed time the morning of because we would have already packed and won’t have to get up so early, being closer to the airport (sorry for the huge sentence!)

So what’s happening with the kids, you wonder? They are going to be staying with their Grandma. I know Willow will be fine because she loves it at Grandma’s with the doggies and probably won’t even notice we’re gone! But going without my Ryder was a tough decision for me. He’s still so little. I didn’t even consider going at first because of this but they all almost convinced me he will still know me when I get back and nothing bad is going to happen.

It is going to be nice to have a week with my husband to feel young again and just relax. Uninterrupted nights (AND conversations) won’t be bad either. Neither will lying in bed in the morning. Imagine that!

BUT, I am sad to say, this will mean no bentos for one week. Again, Willow will be fine, but Mommy is going to miss making them! Can you believe I even had a dream I had a huge package of bento boxes and tools arrive at my door and was rummaging through them all excitedly? AND it wasn't the first time I have had this dream. 

Anyhow, I hope you all have a super duper week! Till next Sunday! Or until things are back to normal 'round here ....

Have a great time! I've never been anywhere without at least one kid since I had my eldest, must be fun, but I would also miss them terribly! Enjoy yourself and come back refreshed and ready for getting back into the swing of mummyhood :) Your mum did fine with you, she'll do even better with her grandkids ;)

Hi Kelly,

I'm blog hopping this morning and saw you on a list. A cruise - that is so awesome! I'm sure you'll have an incredible time and come back refreshed. A win-win for everyone. btw - The pics of your two "babies" are precious - they look so happy. Please stop by my blog when you have some free time and say "hi". Also, take lots of pictures to share while you are on this fabulous cruise.

It feels like it has been SO LONG since I've visited and commented on your blog! I've missed your wonderful meals and things you share. It is so great you were able to take this vacation with your husband. We haven't done anything like this yet since our little one came, but it sounds like it will be memorable for you.

How did it go? I'm such a loser, I just can't leave my child. Maybe if our family were closer but we have no one and our trusted babysitter went off to college. Sigh.
