This is the post where I'm all sentimental and trying not to be.
I've never been a hugely emotional person (granted, I probably seemed like a Vulcan before the heart-mushing experience of having children).
All that to say.. there's a lump in my throat right now.
Here I am, on the eve of this Craft show weekend.
My suitcases are crammed full of crafty goodness... I'm excited.
This is my first I-bounced-back-from-having-babies-craft-show, so that's something.
It's kind of a big deal (you may recall my past artist vs. mama struggles).
But now, the thought of being away from this guy is tearing me up a bit.
I know our daughter will be fine (celebrating an early Christmas with Ben's relatives)... but the 'big Hud' the "Hud Huderson" the "big fat Hudsy"... well, he's a mama's boy.
Or, I'm a boy's mama (?).
We're kind of crazy about each other.
If you're a parent, you'll probably 'get me' on this.
This is the first day I'll be away from my 'baby' (10 mos) boy.
Other than needing that surgery when he was a newborn... I've always been here for him.
Tomorrow he's spending the day with my kind parents.
Don't worry, I've written them a encyclopedia of tips and tricks for Hudson's schedule.. (because, you know... it's not like they have had 3 kids of their own.. ever).
I'm sure the day will be a merry blur, and I'm excited to share about it next week!
I just keep feeling bittersweet about not having my boy near.
(The temptation to bring him along in a baby carrier did present itself... but my spine screamed in terror of heaving his 26lbs around a crowded craft table!)
Tomorrow night will be extra-snuggle time with the family!
Hope to see y'all at the Focus Fair tomorrow... I may need a hug! (They're FREE).
