First sleepover

Sidamo's Grandma (Greg's mom) came over this afternoon after nap time to take Sidamo for a play date and give me and Greg some time to rest (Greg has the full-blown crud now too). The plan was to bring him back before bed time, but then she called and suggested they just keep him for the night. I agreed, sort of impulsively, and then realized what a huge step it is for us—it's our first night without him since he came home eight months ago. I know he's having a great time with Grandma, Pappy and Great-Grandma, but it's still such an odd and empty feeling to not have him here. We're very lucky to have such wonderful family to help out when we need it, though. And a good night's rest will be good for all of us. Still, I miss my little man!

Sorry you came down with that misery. It really is a bad one this year. Nice to have family around to help out! When you can smell again I'll bring your some chocolates ;)

Aww, a big step! Benjamin just had his first overnight with Grandma a few months ago and it felt so strange with him gone! He did way better than I did!!

I'm sure the well needed rest helped though!!
