A Whole Day?!

On Monday, I realized that Mr. Intensity was clueless that I'd be making a trip to Little Rock this week (to meet the birthmom).

Not knowing how he would receive such information, I tried to break the news gently. Hubby was already out of town, I didn't want Mr. Intensity to feel left out (b.c we were too cheap to buy him a plane ticket) I decided to disguise the news as a fun event.

Me:  Guess what?  You get to do something really fun this week.  Something you've never done before.

Mr. Intensity:  (suspicious, but trusting) Like what?

Me:  You get to go on your first sleep over!  At Zachary's house (his best-est bud in the whole widest world).

Mr. Intensity:  Yay!  I get to stay the whole night?

Me:  Yup - and - the next day, you get to go to preschool again.  Three days of preschool this week!

Mr. Intensity:  speechless.  He's hardly able to contain his excitement.  The wheels are spinning in his brain.  He missed last Thursday b.c of a fever and was totally bummed (cried, actually) that he couldn't go to school.

Me:  After school, you'll go back to Zach's house then Mrs. Jill will pick you up.  You'll get to have a second sleep over at her house!

Mr Intensity:  You mean that I get to spend a WHOLE DAY WITHOUT YOU?!!  Oh man!  A WHOLE DAY by MYSELF?!  Yeah!

Me:  Love you, too.  

Pray for our entire family on Wednesday.  Hubby and I meet with the birthmom at 3pm (Central Time).

You are in our prayers all day.

We prayed for you at circle time this morning. The girls were *so* excited to realize that other families adopt babies too :)

I know your pain, Julie. Morgan has that same independent, and seemingly "I don't need you!"-streak. I take comfort in knowing how secure she must feel in my love for her (that must be what it is, right?!?) and in thinking about what a self-assured young woman she will grow up to be!

We will be praying for your trip and for God's hand over your meeting. :)

Anxiously awaiting to hear how it went....praying for you guys!!

Julie said...

Thank you all for your prayers. They were definitely felt...several times yesterday (esp. when I almost missed my flight) I thought, "it's only b.c people are praying for us."

What a funny conversation!! How did the sleep over go?

Julie said...

Merranda asked about the sleep over. He had a blast. Both caregivers (2 nights, different houses) said he was an angel - which totally shocks me...esp. when he was at Zach's house. I thought for sure they would have had a hard time settling down.

Hahahaha.... That's awesome.

That kid makes me chuckle every time I see him.
