Continuing Education

I left Adeline for longer than I ever have this past weekend.  A co-worker and I went to DFW for a continuing education course on handwriting.  I was so nervous and anxious before leaving.  The thought of spending my days off without my girl was just heartbreaking.  However, her grandmas came in town and I think they all really enjoyed each other's company.  They also did a great job of sending me pictures throughout the day so I wouldn't feel too far away.

Katie and I left Thursday morning.  Adeline stayed with Kalee until Jon and the grandmas got there Thursday afternoon.  I got an "eating dinner" text.
 And a "going for a walk" text.
 And a "night night" text.
Katie and I got to eat at my favorite Tex-Mex place, Cristina's then shop at the outdoor mall in Southlake.  We found a great deal on some linen pants at J Crew so we each got a pair for $15.  I'm saving mine for post-maternity, of course.

Our course started first thing Friday morning.  I got a "good morning" text.
 And an "I'm so happy Tulip is back home" text.
A "learning about puzzles & shapes" text.
 And a "playing the piano with Daddy" text.
 And an "I just woke up from my nap and now I'm eating my snack" text.

Katie and I went for lunch at Pei Wei, and did a bit more browsing at NorthEast Mall that night.  We had more education on Saturday.  I got another "good morning" text.
 And a few "playing in the dirt & sprinkler" texts.

 And a "lunch at Chick-fil-A" text.
 And an "I climbed up & slid down all by myself" text!
 And another "just woke up from nap" text.
 And a "drinking lots of sweet tea so I can wait up for you....just kidding" text.
 And the last "night night" text.

We made it back about 11:00 last night.  I went in and patted my sweet sleeping baby then tried really hard to go to sleep.  I slept maybe 3.5 hours.  I woke up pacing at 5:45 just waiting for Adeline to get up.  At 7:30 (her usual waking time) she still hadn't woken.  At 7:45 I decided I couldn't stand it any longer so I just woke her up.  She was so happy to see me, but I think I was still happier.  
So happy to be reunited with my little family!

I'm glad Adeline had a good weekend with her grandmas.  And I learned a lot at my course so I'm glad I went, I just don't think I'm going to be able to part with my girl for a long time.  I'm spending the rest of the day cleaning up and snuggling.
