Yesterday was a super emotional day for me. Being celebrated as a mom is always nice – but there’s nothing like a simple and fun day with the family. You know those moments when you just sit back and take a deep breath as you look around at the amazing things (people) you’ve been blessed with? I’ve never had as many of those moments in one day as I did yesterday. My heart was extremely full to say the least. We ended the night rocking both of our babies to sleep and coming out with tears galore. Kevin hasn’t had to travel since the beginning of January but he left this morning to start a new project in NY. It’s a 6 month long project where he’ll be traveling every other week except in the beginning and end – it’ll be 2 or 3 weeks in a row (home on the weekends though). Nola knew something was wrong and as Kevin rocked her to sleep – she wrapped her arms around his neck and wouldn’t let go.
She woke up asking for him and has continued to do so all day long. She was pretty young when he traveled last year and not yet verbal so she wasn’t able to express missing daddy. This is going to be tough. As of today I have had little desire to clean or make a healthy dinner for the kids. It’s hard knowing nobody is coming home to enjoy it. Hoping to wake up tomorrow and be slightly over this funk. My kids need me to be over it – that’s for sure.
