Mia is crazy about me (and the feeling is mutual :) . Where ever I am, she is. If I go upstairs, she goes upstairs. If I have to go out . . . well, she'd better be coming all all hell breaks loose around here! Most of the time we do go everywhere together, but sometimes that is not possible. Mommy needs to see her friends (once in a blue moon) or like over the weekend, I dared to have our neighborhood holiday party. Yup, poor Mia was not invited :)
I used to sneak out, just to avoid the tears, even though I knew it wasn't right. What happened was that since I was the one going out and daddy was home, she takes it out on daddy. Days later, she would not let him get close. If he did, she would say "mommy, mommy, mommy" with panic in her voice and run to me. It was sad, I felt badly and now I tell her I am going out.
As I was getting ready for our party Saturday night, she saw me putting on my dress and jewerly. So, she had to put on her Belle dress and shoes ~ this mommys dream :)
Shortly after this picture was taken, we had to leave (my parents are the only ones we allow to watch the kids - so it is not a stranger babysitting). I calmly told Mia and the boys we were going out and to give us kisses and hugs. My poor girl had tears streaming down her face, crying and screaming; and the worst part was....she was crawling behind me on the floor calling my name! My heart was breaking and it took me a while to compose myself!
*The good news is that when I called a short time later, she was fine.
The good-byes are just torture for this mommy!
