I'm Going to Miss You

Monday, July 13, 2009
Tomorrow Mom is joining her parents on a 10 day vacation to Texas and she is taking Alyce and Luke with her. The whole trip jumped up at the last second and to be truthful I'm not ready for it.  This will be the longest I've ever been away from the kids and from Mom.  If this were only a three day trip I would relish the break from parenting but longer than that and I think I will really be missing my family.  I'm half tempted to buy some web cameras so I can see them and they me.  I think if I see their faces while talking to them it would be much easier on me.  I hope Mom will take up the blogging reigns in my absence as she will be my only source of info about the kids.

I also wish Mom the best of luck. The trip could go well or could be a nightmare.  I think the trip will be easy on Luke.  He loves being in the car and should sleep most of the time while in it.  My fear is that with so much sleep during the day that he won't sleep well during the night.  While in the short term that won't affect me I hope it won't lead to sleeping trouble when he gets back home.  The only other trouble Luke could have is the weather.  It can get hot down in Texas and Luke isn't a big fan of being hot.  Luke doesn't have a nap schedule so at least Mom won't be stuck in the room from 2:00 - 5:00 everyday because Luke needs a nap.
