We've been in Texas since Friday, and I've had a wonderful time. I love seeing my family that lives here, and Cadence has LOVED playing with her cousins. We (meaning me, Cadence, my sister, and her boyfriend) arrived about 10pm Friday night, and then had a Pump it Up party on Saturday for Chase. Cadence had a blast, and I think even Cecily and Benjy were worn out by the time we got home. Today, Chase had a friend's birthday party to go to - again, at Pump It Up - and the kid's mom was nice enough to let Cadence come, too. So, after two days of it, she's now zonked out upstairs. Tomorrow, we'll get up and make the 7 hour trip home, and I can't wait to see my husband. I miss him! Cadence will be at my mom's all week, and I'm looking forward to that, too. It should be a nice, quiet week!
We did have a breakthru this week. This is the first trip Cadence has taken without JoJo. We left her at my office on accident when we left Friday, and she insisted that we didn't have to go back and get her. I think I was more upset than she was. She'll be riding home with my sister tomorrow night, but my mom is bringing my Grandfather up on Tuesday for treatments, so JoJo will be sent back with her. I can't believe she's been so big about it. It's sad. JoJo has been a constant companion since she was about 18 months old. Why does she have to grow up?
Wish us luck on our trip tomorrow, and I'll post party pictures when I'm home!
Things I'm thankful for:
2) Cousins for Cadence to play with
3) My sister and her boyfriend to keep me company on the trip home
4) My mom. For taking Wee One for almost a full week!
5) A quiet house
