Today is the day...I am trying not to be sad. We just sat in the rocking chair and cuddled and talked and teased and laughed last night for about 45 min while L was busy. It was so fun. When I put him to bed, he asked, "Mommy, are you going to miss me when I'm away?" It almost made me cry. I told him of course I'd miss him and that yes, I was so proud of him being my big, brave boy for flying alone. I told him how excited I was for him to see his baby brother and see how much he's grown and that I knew seeing his dad and K (his dad's new wife) would be fun, I would still miss him terribly. So, he took Hugs (the bear he sleeps with every night), and gave the bear a bunch of kisses and hugs (like I did with the dog he's taking with him) and told me that while he was away, if I missed him too much, I could sleep with Hugs and that Hugs would be holding all the kisses and hugs he'd left for me so I could have them any time. It brought tears to my eyes. I leaned over and gave him a big hug and a kiss on the head and had to walk out so he didn't see me cry. He's such an amazing little kiddo. It was so sweet to me because I knew that what I did with his puppy must mean a lot if he thinks of it enough to try and do the same to make sure I'm okay while he's gone.
You can't stop the sunrise and you can't stop the sunset. What's meant to be will eventually just be.
