I’m Gonna Miss This

filed under: Miscellaneous on October 7, 2010

I am leaving in a few short hours for San Fransisco, CA.

For the first time ever, I am leaving behind these guys.



I cant believe how long its been since I posted a picture of these sweet little people.




Of those tiny baby teeth and shining eyes.




Of my little ones out and about enjoying the world.


It is impossibly hard to leave them today…

…my heart hurts thinking that I might miss one moment of joy or one more opportunity to express delight in their accomplishments.

I know its good for me as well as them.

But that doesn't change the fact that I will miss them dreadfully.

At least I know they are in good hands

    Awww- yes, you’ll miss them, but as they say- “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”, and your missing them will make your homecoming all the more sweet and precious!!
    Have an incredible time!

    Oh, they look so sweet! Have a wonderful trip and enjoy it–just call home often! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great trip! SF is a great city. My husband and daughter are travelling for a few days and I miss them sooo much, but I know they will be home soon.

    It is one of the funny things about motherhood. Some days you wish you could go off all by yourself for some peace and quiet…and then when you have the chance, you’re not sure you want to anymore. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have fun on your trip.

    I love that you so love being a mother! I feel the same way, and can’t even think of the last time that I left them that was for more than a couple of hours..

    They are so cute! Enjoy yourself and instead of thinking about how much you will miss them, think about how excited you will all be when you get home! The coming home is SO worth it!!

  • Bethany says:

    They are getting SO big. My word, it is time for another baby. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope it’s fun out there. I have never been to California. But I do love the to see the Pacific. Stick your toes in for me if you get there, will ya?

  • Dea says:

    aww! They are so cute! And i know ive missed seeing them on your blog! Hope all is well and have a safe trip!

  • scatterbrain says:

    Aww!! I know how you feel. I have to go for a teacher’s workshop in Dubai next month and I’ll be away from my lil girl for 4 days! I already miss her when I think of it.
    I’m so thrilled for you, though, that you are a speaker at a BlogHer convention!! Imagine that, I am blog friends with a celebrity!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    All the best!! be blessed!

    They are so precious! I’m so happy that you’re feeling well enough to go….enjoy your time away…think about how excited they/you will be when you return!!
    Prayers for safe travel and a relaxing and renewing time.

    My husband took our boys up to Fargo last year when I went to BlogHer Food. Was so hard on me but they had a blast bonding with dad + riding horses. And then once I made a few friends at BlgHer I was fine. Have fun!

  • carma says:

    they are absolutely precious – but this trip will be good for mom and I bet you’ll come back all refreshed and inspired!! I can’t believe how much Audrey has changed!!

  • izzy says:

    Aww…why are you leaving behind your precious little ones? ๐Ÿ™

  • Karen says:

    Hey sweet friend! I trust you have had a wonderful trip to SF. How exciting for you to have that opportunity!
    I have been thinking about you frequently – was surprised when I heard about your pregnancy ‘scare’, but so glad it was simply the Best Mistake Ever. (Gianna had links to those posts. And I came over to read.) God has His hand on you and your baby, and I pray the peace of knowing that truth will carry you today.
    Much love,
