Auntie Katie holding Addyson at 3 days old.
I'm feeling somewhat anxious because I've never been away from the babies for more than a day. I know Sean can handle them and that they will have a blast with their Daddy while Mommy is gone. But I guess I am not sure how to be... who I'll be... without them. Hopefully, I'll figure it out if not just naturally, with the smooth, warming encouragement of a good cabernet.
I am looking forward to experiencing Southern California. I've only been once and it was a short trip so I am eager to do at least one "typically" Long Beach thing. I do know that I am headed for some medieval style fun and a super huge turkey leg. I also know that we (as in KiKi and me) will be learning more about empowering ourselves as women. I'm all about empowerment. And I'm a woman. I'm fairly certain there will be nail polish. I know we'll eat too much and lay around patting our food babies. We'll play with dogs. We'll do the things I used to do before I didn't get to do them as much anymore. For a few days I will not be solely Mama. I'm excited. I'm terrified.
I'll be keeping you updated on what's going on. Make sure to join me over on my Facebook Page so you can keep up with our antics while I'm down there. I can't promise what we do will be completely clean, safe for work or children, or won't offend your senses. I can promise that I will return much better for the trip. You'll see.
