This is the first time we have lived close enough for my babies to have overnight trips to Mema & Papa's house. Actually, we live just far enough away for it to be easier to have week-long trips. That is where my little man is right now - a week long trip to Mema & Papa's. Fun stuff.
Selah seemed to be okay with this. I went over the details with her a day or so earlier - just so she wouldn't be sidelined by the shock. She was mildly upset at the news, but at the reassurance that 'her turn was next', she took it all in stride.
Until we got to the train station...
It suddenly just hit her. Wait a sec. Isaac is leaving without me. Mema is leaving without me. Someone is doing something fun WITHOUT ME! What is going on?!?!
She tried being sad, "I wanna go tooooooooooo".
She tried being mad - complete refusal to even LOOK at Mema.
She tried being sweet "Pleeeeeeeeeease?!?!?"
Finally, she resorted to negotiation, "Can we play 'Eenie-meanie-minie-moe' ???"
Hey, it's a 50-50 chance with Eenie.
p.s. she's back to being adorable. Tonight, during her prayers, she told God she missed her brother SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much...... kid prayers are the best!!
