Off to Grandmas



Part of me is posting this to document such a monumental moment.  Part of me is posting, if I'm honest with myself and you,  because I know there will be comments and I could use a few "mommy-good-ones". So, that's a hint hint to you.

Today I packed up my little girl and all her things to head over to grandmas.  Without me.  Typically, I drive her over there, drop her off and runs some errands or head to photo shoots, but today, Grandma came and got her while I sit here and [supposed to be] prep for the two weddings we get the pleasure of photographing this weekend.  

Today my little baby took one more step into little girlhood.

I'm excited that she loves her grandma so much that she didn't cry when I said bye, but so much of me is sad that she didn't cry for me.  I miss her and she just left.

  1. That IS a big step. It's very bittersweet. You want her to be independent and happy on her own, yet you crave that quality time with her... and secretly wish she will always want to not leave your side. I get it. Good job mama.

  3. Due to an emergency surgery I had to have my daughter had her first spend the night with Grandma at the ripe old age of 4 weeks old. I guess that broke me in! I love my daughter and I do miss her when she's gone but I'm very proud that I've raised her to be confident and independent enough to be away from me and not lose it! But I will say sometimes when she's gone and I'm alone I don't know what to do, it's like I don't know how to get stuff done without watching her at the same time!!! Lol!

  4. Take it from someone who is going through some changes with my "baby" boy!! God has just shown me over and over that as each phase ends another one just as precious is beginning! I find myself now looking with excitement at what God will do next and i am NEVER disapointed!!! Just another precious moment! Joss is so blessed =)

  5. ...and why am I the one crying? if you're anything like YOUR momma, you'd be breaking out the pictures and watching home videos...

    Good and bad newa. Bad news: it doesn't get easier. Good news: it doesn't get easier. Praying for you.

  9. Ahhh - I hear ya. Z and I took a 2nd honeymoon this past weekend. Robi went to his grandparents for 4 days without us. We called everyday, and everyday the news was the same, "He is having a great time, hasn't cried, doesn't even know you're gone." So, I was happy that he wasn't miserable...but part of me wondered if he couldn't be just a widdle bit sad that mommy and tata weren't there. lol!
