Enter Grandpa and Grandma...Exit Mommy and Daddy
I just said goodbye to my girls. Surprisingly, I am not weeping. At 4:00 am tomorrow morning we will begin our journey to Hawaii. As happy-- no, more like thrilled and ecstatic-- as I am about this anniversary getaway, right now the gift I am most thankful for is the one Mom and Dad are giving us with their childcare. This weekend has already been wonderful. The girls are so excited to have them here. Even Delia, who's normally a bit of a clinger, keeps asking, "Where Grandma go?" whenever she can't see her or being a super-cuddle bug with Grandpa. Neither girl had any trouble saying goodbye to me tonight! So after giving a weekend crash-course in "Ella and Delia 101" and witnessing proof that Delia will, in fact, be just fine with out Mommy and Daddy, we feel all ready to go! See you next weekend with tons of pictures and stories!
