Jan 6

I am panicking a little about my travel arrangements. Not only am I leaving my sweet girls and T.J. behind, but also will travel when the weather is less than cooperative. I depart from Baton Rouge tomorrow morning, it's currently raining, and the low tonight is 20 degrees. At least I will know ahead of time if my flight is delayed/canceled.

Bronwen has of late been crying for me in the middle of the night. No explanation, just crying until I get her back into bed. Last night she started up around 11. I went in, put her in bed, and the following transpired:

Me: What is wrong?
B: I don't know.
Me: Why are you crying?
B: Because I wanted you to come.
Me: Why?
B: Because I like you.
Me: Well you will like me more if I get some sleep.

And she didn't get up for the rest of the night! I hope she is okay when I am gone. She and I have such a routine down; intellectually I know she will survive, but I also remember the horrible feeling of really missing my mom.

I'm sorry Jen. I know that it's hard to leave. Just think about how happy they will be to see you when you get back. (Not to mention how much more TJ will appreciate you...:))

Thanks, girl! Let's hope so :-)
