I Left My Kids. . .

I left my kids, and they are so glad I did.

If I hadn't left, they wouldn't have gone on an hour-long hike to the top of the world.


If I hadn't left, he would still be on four wheels versus two.


If I hadn't left, she wouldn't have been able to save the free world. . . .


. .with their help.


With me out of the picture, they got to spend much-needed time with their dad alone. Which is a good thing.

But, that doesn't mean I stayed away forever. Just four days.

Enough time to do stuff like this, which was good for me too.


(many thanks to Dove Clinical Protection for the hilarious photo booth at Sparklecorn! Bonus points if you can ID my hot, sexy date)

Well, der. I know your partner in crime, but should I tell? Nah! I'll keep the mystery alive!

(I'm kind of regretting not doing the Dove crazy photo booth, but pretty regret much nothing else.)

(Except running up to Queen of Spain and wishing her a hearty goodbye because from the back I thought she was someone else. Good thing she is so nice, 'cause I'm a spaz.)

Awesome... I love this! In a similar bunch of firsts, my kid had her first sleepover, swam in the ocean (without clutching anyone), and gave a dog a haircut.

It's amazing what happens when the moms head off to rock an 80s dance floor! -Christine

I know who your partner in crime is as well.

Can I leave my kids with your Husband too? They all need to learn the two wheel thing!

When John was posting all the stuff they were doing on FB, I was thinking the same thing about how much they were doing while 'the cat was away'. Looks like you had a great time yourself! Us Mom's need that every once in a while.

I had a great time with both of you!

(And don't tell Liz, but I snuck a can of Chicken of the Sea into her luggage.)

Hot sexy date has to be...nope not gonna spill it. Well OK, I'm like 98% sure and it's likely to be that 2% uncertainty that kicks my butt!

I am sooooooo glad that i got to meet you. Next year, it will have to be for longer than mere seconds.

My kids went camping with their dad and I think that it's important. For him and for them. Which is why, I'll be buying my tix for next year shortly.
