15 Thoughts My Baby Has About Me Leaving For A Week

OMG it’s Saturday and I’m posting #WTH. Truth is I had this post mostly written but then my computer died and since the move I had no idea where the charger was, also… #lazy. Between moving to a new state, having family and friends around {finally}, a roly poly baby, and Brad being off work… it’s been BANANAS. B-A-N-A-N-A-S! The not too hard, not too soft, not too annoying kind of banana, ya know?

So thankful but I gotta say: I have never been around Brad this much. Love him to pieces but, like, no offense dude but are you going to go back to work soon? I have like 898 brain numbing reality television shows to watch and it’s really hard when you comment “how can you watch this?” 900 times. #eyeroll

Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to have him around to put the baby to bed, pour me wine, change diapers, and I don’t have to go to bed alone most nights. But I swear, if he wears those sweatpants one more day I might kill myself. Or, more realistically, hide them under a log in the fireplace. #whoopsies

But I can’t get sick of him yet because in case you missed it the other 23947234 times I’ve mentioned it, we are going on our HONEYMOON (3.5 years later… who’s counting?) MORE quality time together! The countdown is in single digits with 2 days until liftoff. Before I can say “OMG I MISS MY BABY” 1200 times I’ll be sitting with a frozen, sugary cocktail overflowing onto my fingers while my body melts into the warm sand.

7 days without holding my baby is going to be… I don’t know what word to use here… hard? sad? nice? peaceful? hard? sad? nice? peaceful?…?

Am I the worst?

To make myself feel better I have listed 15 thoughts I believe my baby will have while I’m gone:

  1. Where is my mom?
  2. Are you my new mom?
  3. Where is my mom?
  4. I want my mom
  5. I miss my mom
  6. I’m hungry
  7. What’s that shiny thing over there?
  8. Who’s this lady feeding me?
  9. GiGi is nice.
  10. I love GiGi
  11. I want GiGi
  12. I’m tired.
  13. I want GiGi to hold me.
  14. GiGi is my favorite.
  15. Who is mom?

This all happens within 5 minutes. Kent is the least of my worries when it comes to me leaving. He will be perfectly fine. I, on the other hand, am praying I don’t cry every single day… for more than an hour.


I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Thanks for reading. I’ll report back from HAWAII and let you know how I survive in perfect degree weather without my baby and around my husband for 7 full days!
