My kids call one of their grandmothers Nendny. Lucas and Jacob go over to Nendny and Papa's house frequently and absolutely love it. My mom has been bugging me for awhile now about Caleb coming over to her house. I brushed it off and just kept saying that he wasn't old enough yet and really never thought anymore about it..I would quickly push it out of my mind because honestly I didn't want to think about it. The thought of him not being in my house when I went to bed at night...of not being able to walk in his room after he's asleep and cover him one last time and kiss him sweet little face scared me to death. I worry about the small stuff....I stressed over the fact that he drinks alot of orange juice and she drinks it with pulp and he might not like it so I needed to make sure I told her to get pulp free(which she would have done in a heartbeat!) but my mind just went in every direction. A few days ago she kept asking me about him spending the night so I finally gave in...She wanted to come and get him on Wednesday so he could spend the night and then she was going to get the other two boys for a few days after that. Honestly from that second that I agreed I stressed..I lost sleep..I worried. I mentioned it to him Tuesday night and started talking it up to him and he was soooo excited! He kept saying that "He was going to Nendny's and going to spend the night." My stomach was in knots when I got up yesterday morning and I honestly I realized that he was probably ready but I was absolutely not. So when he got up from his nap it was time for her to come pick him up and he was very happy..she got here and he told her he was going to spend the night with her so we got his stuff and I went to go put his carseat in her car.........HE DIDN'T MOVE. He wanted to go bye bye in my car...but he wouldn't go near hers. After about 15 minutes of talking I realized that he wasn't going to go...he quickly changed his mind and said that he didn't want to go and that he wanted to stay home. Of course the other two took the opportunity to go one day earlier so they're gone now but I still have my baby boy. People may think he's a big boy but inside he's still a momma's boy and I might be a horrible person but oh how I love it and just like that...no more stress..no more knots in my stomach..and last night as I tucked him and gave him a kiss before I went to bed last night I was extra thankful for my little boy.
I love this face!
As soon as they left this is where he was at...happy and at home!
