Really...

If you've seen me in the last week and thought that I looked really
A) Tired.
B) Grumpy.
C) Near Tears.
D) All of the above.
It's because Travis has been gone on a business trip to Savannah Georgia for 5 days (5 days!) and I've been single mom'in it. Let me be clear, I was not meant to be a single mom. Really. Not.
He left on quite a crazy week, I had 2 fun lunch dates, Bunco (at my house), book club, tons of hair, with Adyson and Sienna's play dates, dance, and school piled on top of that. By the time he got home I was pretty much DONE! And I must mention that I really, really, really missed him. Really.

I promised the girls that we would have a Girls slumber party while he was gone, and they were all for it! You know my girls, always up for ANYTHING girly. Really.

The night started out with a trip to Good old Wal-mart for some fun Surprises. For Adyson, the Birthday Peek-a-boos to go with the dollhouse Santa brought her. For Sienna, Snow White. They really like surprises quite a lot!


Then came the cookie making (per Sienna's request). Oh how they really love licking the beaters!

And Make-up (per Adyson's request). I was thinking they would love to put on their fun make-up Santa brought them. But Ady had other plans, she begged me to use my make-up on her. Let's not discuss how utterly beautiful and grown up they are looking here. Really.

Then we played, and played, and played. My girls really like to make believe!

Then, a chick flick. A snugly bed on the floor. Loads of blankets and pillows. And yes, Sienna is eating a cookie in bed. Don't judge, it was our GNO. And it really exhausted me.

It was a really fun night for the girls, but honestly we all just really missed Daddy. The house just doesn't feel the same without him! We are so happy to have him back and I've informed him that he is not to leave us for that long again. Really.

What a fun night! But, seriously, no more make up! My heart is breaking a little bit...

Eileen said...

What!? I was not invited!!!!? Well then. I have no idea what I'll do. Maybe I'll have to eat worms.

You are such a fun mom! Was the chick flick "Mamma Mia"?

Ashley Mae said...

I was in Georgia last week too! Only Jeff and Pearl had daddy-daughter week instead of GNO. You're a great mom to do all that!

Jon is leaving for 2 WEEKS coming up and I am about ready to die....

Glad you made it through!

I really feel your pain. I hate when Matt leaves on a business trip. It sucks. I swear the kids don't mind as well either it's like they know their dad isn't coming home to re-enforce what your saying. I'm so happy for you that he's home.

Bre said...

I HATE to be alone as well. But it looks like you had a fun time filling up the hours. ANd your right your girls do look way to grown up and beautiful in the make-up pic. I cant wait to play make-up with Brielle. How fun, instead of the same old cars, trucks etc. Your such a good mom!

Kristin said...

I'm glad you found time to have a fun night with the girls in the midst of all the busyness!

Bunco was so much fun and your food was delish! Thanks!

Melissa said...

I agree, I totally could not do the single mom thing!! I hate when my hubby even gets home late, but it looks like the GNO was very successful! And, is it bad to eat cookies in bed?? Man, I'm in trouble then!!!

What a fun party. You are a cute Mom.

Candace said...

That is so hard when Dad is gone, but you are such a cute mom! I am so impressed. Usually when Kevin is gone I am like go to bed it is 7:00 and we are done here. Looks like tons of fun. Aren't girls a riot?
