My parents were going to Utah this last weekend and decided that they would like to take Payton along to play with his cousin Shelby down there. After much jumping and screaming and laughing when I told him he’d get to go down to Utah, he looked at me very seriously and asked if I would be going, or brynley, or daddy, and when I told him we weren’t he got a scared look on his face and the next second it was gone. Gone was my little boy who always wanted mommy around especially on a big trip like this. Don’t get me wrong I’m the mothering type that I want my kids to be very independent from me, but I still want them to want me around.Ahh it was a sad day, he was so excited to go, Alone. After he left I seriously felt depressed for a minute, until I realized I had some time alone to get to know my sweet little girl, who got unlucky and had to come after a very forward outgoing center of attention little boy. Needless to say we all had fun, and when Payton came home, walk in the door and yelled MOMMY, I’M HOME! I thought him being a big boy isn’t so bad.
