That face....it gets me EVERY time

Dearest Sugar Bear,

Mommy misses you already, and it's only been a few hours since I strapped you in that car seat, and sent you happily on your way. How can a single human being miss another human being so very much, when normally we wouldn't even be together at this hour?

Normally, your smiling face would be at daycare, and I'd be at work. We'd be apart, but it never feels quite like this. NEVER! It only feels different because I know that for the next SIX nights you will not be lying in your beautiful oak captains bed, under the brightly colored duvet I made just for YOU. I won't be able to snuggle down for story time, then linger as you slowly fall asleep. When I sneak back into your room to give you a final little kiss on your warm little face, you won't be there. I'll have to settle for hugging one of your cherished stuffed animal friends...in fact I'm likely to carry one back to my own bed for an all night cuddle.

Our house won't be a HOME without you in it....for this I am certain. I can already sense my empty arms. Sure......there will be things to occupy my time, as there is always so very much to do around here, but I'll still find myself wishing you were here. We have been apart MANY, MANY times before, but it has never felt like this. Maybe it's because this will be the longest stretch EVER....or maybe it's because it was unplanned, and I didn't have time to mentally prepare, and to start looking forward to some projects of my own getting done. It's probably a little bit of both.

Mostly, I think it's because the WHOLE reason you are on this little schedule away from home, is the fact that someone we both cherish, and appreciate, someone who watches you through the week while I'm at work, has been hurt badly in a car accident. It rocked our world this weekend, and sent my mind, yet again, to thinking about how precious this little life we lead is. It got me worked up about how precarious it all is....and makes me want to hold you all the tighter.....but instead you are far away.

Oh Sugar.....I know you'll have a great time at D and D's house....and then at Grandma's. And I'll even get to see you for a tiny bit tomorrow, and then again at your Recital on Saturday, but goodness gracious, I miss you already. You are my little honey...my punkin wunkin...my squishy wishy cheeks....my peaches and pie...my bestest little friend. Your smile lights up my life, and I'm proud to share your light with others.

Have fun...play nice......eat your veggies, and remember your manners. I can't wait to hear all about it.

I love YOU a bushel and peck! ♥ MAMA

I can imagine you going to miss your sugar bear...she's precious and fills your life.

sorry to hear about the accident of someone you care lots about.

Beautiful photo's of sugar, those amazing eyes.

Gayle said...

I am saddened to hear about the accident. I am sure you must care deeply for this person if you leave Sugar with them. I hope their recovery is quick. Sorry you are missing your girl.

Cheryl said...

Awww... There are days when I WISH some one would take my children for a few days but when it came down to it I would enjoy it for a few hours and then the novelty would wear off. Hopefully the time will fly!

Autumn said...

Oh dear, so sorry to hear about Sugars care giver. It's so hard to leave our kids. Even if we know they will be in the best of hands.

Andrea said...

sigh....beautiful....she is a lucky little girl to have such a loving (and talented) mother.

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

It is quite the adorable face! And you do such a wonderful job capturing it!

Sorry to hear about the car accident. I hope the 6 days pass quickly for you and that things get back to normal soon.

Christina said...

What a lucky little girl to have such a wonderful mommy. Your love just shines through.

Blessings,
Christina

Oh Corey! This one has the tears flowing. I understand. Been there, done that. it's hard. It's amazing how much difference one little person can make. It's even harder when you're NOT certain that your child is safe and happy when away from you, and she takes days to readjust after she comes home. THAT is REALLY hard. ((HUGS)) Hope ths week flies by. Bet you get lots of sewing done this week. ;o)

This is a touching post. As a mom, I find it hard to part with my son even for short periods. I'm sorry to hear about that accident. I hope everything will be alright.
