I was wrong!

So I have known for 6 years.  Yes, since the day of my oldest daughter's birth I have known that she would be going to Disney with her grandparents at the ripe old age of 6.  I have dreaded this week away from my baby.  I have hated it over and over again.  I was so worried that she would be upset, miss us, etc, etc, etc.  Of course, everyone told me how good it would and how much fun she would have.  Don't worry, don't worry, don't worry.  But, I didn't really believe ANY of them. Well, obviously, I was WRONG.  Today is day 5 of her trip and the little girl is having the time of her life.  She has probably spoken to us for a total of 10 minutes (if even) since being gone and I'm pretty sure it is only because Grandma and Pepre make her.  "I'm having a good time, mom!"  "Do you miss me?"  This the sum of our conversations.  

I guess this is all part of the new growth thing.  My baby is growing up and I have to just get over it.  I'm so glad she is having this awesome experience with her grandparents.  To Bob and Susan, thanks!  (Despite all my complaining and bitching I'm so glad she is sharing this with you both).

Now, maybe when she comes home our "big" girl can sleep in her own bed.....hmmm.......

I think it's always harder on us.
I'm so glad she's having a good time.
Can't wait until you can join the family.

I don't think *you're* ready for her to sleep in her own bed. LOL!

I think these separations are harder on us than them. I was so nervous about leaving Madeline overnight the first time with George's mom (at our house for our 10th anniversary). I know I missed her more than she missed me.

Aawww, I can totally relate. I don't even like leaving our trio with Nana & Papa every other Sunday for few hours. Then the report is how great they were with no crying, but the second we walk in the door, all tears swell up.

I can't even imagine the day they all move out!!!

I love it! My baby girl turns 10 today and I will never forget her first plane ride that I wasn't on with her. You never realize as a parent how much you truly love the messes they make, the screaming fits, and sobbing cries until you aren't with them for an extended period of time. It's the small blessings that make the big ones count. Kudos to you for making it to day 5.. I hope you'll post pictures of her trip!! Have a great rest of the week!
