The Beginning of Summer

**First and foremost, thank you for all of the birthday love yesterday. Through texts, emails, calls and Facebook, Instgram, and blog comments, I felt it. So, thank you! It was a very happy day :)

Time seriously flies! As of yesterday, Little Dude is a kindergarten graduate!

And today, he boards a plane and flies to Utah to spend half of the summer with his dad. The boy can hardly contain his excitement!

For me, however, it has definitely taken some time getting used to him being away. And I know it can be difficult for other moms out there too because as summer approaches, I've been getting asked questions about how to cope when the kids are away and how to prepare.


I thought that while Little Dude is enjoying his time away, now would be a perfect time for me to write about and share with you the ideas and concepts that have gotten me through these times. Plan to see this topic, as well as some blending family ideas because that has been asked too, next week on the blog :)

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy our last day together, I'm going to smother him with kisses and hugs (even though he's totally over my kisses and wipes them off now :-/ ), I'm going to pack his little backpack and prepare him to fly alone, and I'm going to remember that I can do hard things.



  1. I feel your pain, my kids are going to their dads for the summer too.

  2. My kids do every other weekend and it has been going on for YEARS!!! But I still have a hard time with it. I have to psyche myself up for it about mid-week and think of all the things I can get done!! ;p Whatever works...

    And all three are over my kisses. I get them in when I can...

    You are an amazing mom, Jacy. Trust yourself and just keep on lovin' the little guy. Love wins. Always! <3
