The one I dream of, and the one I leave behind

Okay, I'm giving in. I have more I'd like to share on the blog, but don't feel comfortable in such an open setting.. so as of this weekend the blog is going private. If you would like to continue viewing the blog, just let me know and I'll add your name. I'll try to invite family, friends, and fellow bloggers that I know check the site. If I've forgotten you, know that my head is somewhere else right now. I don't mind a nudge. :)

Jack and I went to a local Schwimmbad with friends today. We had an absolute blast. Although I am very impatiently waiting for our LOI and travel dates, I know each day brings me closer to leaving my first born behind for 2 months. Just typing this and making the thought more concrete is almost more than I can bear. So, today was just the day I wanted and needed to have with Jack. We both enjoyed playing with each other and he was in a great mood (so was I :). Plus he was able to play with the other kids and pool toys while I got to chit-chat with girlfriends. He has 4 more days before Spring Break is over, and hopefully we'll get just as many fantastic days. He's an awesome boy; I'm so lucky I get to be his mom.

Hi
Could you add me to your blog list? I don't have a blog(yet), but I am in the process to adopt from Kaz and my dossier is at MFA and reading blogs is my way of handling this wait.

Oh my. I can't tell you how much I relate to this post. We have not decided whether Luca will stay or go with us yet. We are putting it off until we know where we are going. I am trying to put it out of my mind and enjoy the time I have with him right now.

It sounds like you are having fun with your son! I guess that's all we can do, right?
