ROAD TRIP....

The big day for my daughter is fast approaching and next week we will be taking her to her dance competition. However when it comes to travelling with four children it tends to be a bit difficult but for this trip our worry was what are we going to do with the kids to keep them entertained so that we can enjoy watching the dance competition? No more worries! Jay wants to stay behind with his friend for the 4 days that we will be away and that is perfectly fine with his friends mother because Jay spends a lot of time their anyway. This is going to be a hard thing to do for me because Jay is going to be 12 years old next month and I have never left him with anyone when travelling out of town. I know he will be fine but I am struggling with it.
Now as for the other two boys, great news! Our sitter has offered to come along with us on the trip which will make things so much easier and the younger two boys will have a great time with her. This is where I will have to look into an online phone card so that I can call often to check up on Jay to make sure that he is alright and our sitter can call her parents when she wants to. I find it so much easier to use prepaid phone cards while travelling and I this way we won't see all the long distance phone charges on our hotel bill.
Tomorrow night is the girls last dance rehearsal before we leave so I am sure they will be worked pretty hard and I still have some last minute alterations to get done on Trinity's costume. I know what I will be doing later on tonight!

Leaving a kid behind for the first time must be hard, but think of all the fun he'll be having.

(this coming from the woman who NEVER leaves her kids anywhere!)

Well Jenn I am glad to hear that I'm not the only one that keeps her kids close by at all times!

Everyone calls me overprotective but I think you have to be these days.

This is going to be the first trip I'll take that I will be waiting to come home. Usually I look for any excuss to stay longer. I am going to miss him so much but he is so excited to be staying behind.
