Vacation Bible School

Today is the first day of VBS down at our church. I am slightly nervous about bringing Emma. I know the people that are doing the program very well (some of whom taught me when I was little), but it is the first time I will be leaving her for any length of time with someone other than my mom. Silly, I know. She is 3 years old, she has her little friends going and my best friend's son who is like her big brother will be there to look after her.

It is just so difficult to watch how fast my babes are growing, and the independence that they feel. Even now when Jack and Emma can play together without me, it is kind of sad. I am such a sap, I know! I am hoping I am not alone in these feelings, and that other mamas can relate at some level to this business of growing up!

On the plus side, this should give me a week full of free mornings to spend with my littlest and to maybe make a dent in the cleaning that needs to be done around here! So let's all cross our fingers that Emma absolutely loves going to "school" and I don't come home and have an anxiety attack and curl up on the couch with Jack until I can pick her up :-)


  1. I didn't know you were doing this! That's great. I hope she enjoys it!

  2. She absolutely loved it! Of course they fed her so much high fructose corn syrup that she has been crashing since 12:15 when we picked her up...not sure independence is worth 4 hours of tantrums :-)
