Today I am taking off work early to go on a camp out with the Relief Society(Women 18 and older from church). Well last night while I was packing my clothes, because I do everything last minute, Ben and I were explaining to the kids that mommy was going to be gone a couple days. This doesn't happen to often, usually Ben is the one leaving and I'm staying home. Ty wasn't all that okay with me going. He wanted to know why couldn't come with me and truly wanted either him to come too or me stay at home. I explained that it was something for mommy to go do with other mommies and that no kids were coming. Once he accepted that, it came down to how deos he take advantage of the time he does have with mommy. Luckily for me, all he wanted was cuddle time! I love my boy. It's times like that when you wonder if with all the running around for sports and groceries, and the rest of life, if your kids are really enjoying spending that time with you. Well, they are. Its the times when I know they are going to miss me and really do want me around that help fortify me for when they aren't being quite so calm or sweet, or even nice. I love my kids!
Just for the record, Madison also wanted to get some cuddle time in. :)
