Under My Wing


Carter's staying the night at Mimi's tonight and it feels like I'm missing a limb.

Maybe I need to cut the cord, maybe I need to let them wander from the nest once in a while, but maybe I just love all my babies so much and like to have them close.



There is nothing wrong in that at all.

  7. I know what you mean. My kids have had sleepovers with Gram this week, and we miss them too when they are gone. It is so cute how they miss each other!

    Great picture!

  8. I feel the same way when Roo is staying with her grandparents. It's nice that they have that bond, but I miss her so much.

    Hug him extra when he gets home to you Momma! : )

    Letting them go is bittersweet . . .

  11. There's definitely nothing wrong with it. People always ask us why we don't let out 18 month old stay overnight, and I just blink at them like they're speaking Chinese. Give me a few more years before I can deal with an overnight!

  14. Nope, nothing wrong with that at all. Hold them close now because before you know it, they will have flown the coop and be adults themselves.

  19. Even though our oldest goes to his grandparents a few times each year I still miss him...mostly at the night time when I see an empty bed.

  20. You are entitled to keeping him under your wing as long as you can. He is your baby Carter. We had such a good time and I know his brothers missed him.

  21. My lil guy spent his first nigth away from me recently. It was actually a whole weekend. Difficult for me, but he had a great time with Mom-mom.

  22. Nope, absolutely nothing wrong with that! I'm so attached to my little guy like I never knew I could be!

  23. Nothing at all. I know what you mean.

  24. I was the sme way! My twins went for a sleep over with their meme for the first time in their five years and I cried all day!

  25. Nope there is definitely nothing wrong with that. My girls are 5 and 3, and they have never spent the night away from me ;). I'm hoping my oldest doesn't have to for the first time tomorrow night incase they keep my husband in the hospital since we will be 2.5 hours away from home. I am getting anxiety just thinking about it.

  26. Oh, they're still babies. Hold 'em and hug 'em snuggly.

  27. I.am.so.there.with.you.

    It's almost panic when they're not with me :( Birth is going to be hard, again, because I'll be away from them all, except the new one.
