I put a very, very sleepy Rosie to bed and continued with my evening. I love sleepovers when they take place here but not so much the other way around. If I had to choose the perfect person to take care of Lily it would be Hollis. I know she is safe and from the bottom of my heart I can tell you that I do not worry about her when she is there, in fact I thank my lucky stars that I have Hollis in my life and that we all get along so well because she is such an amazing Mother and we share the same views and feelings about so many things, especially our girls.
BUT, I miss Lily, I think about her all the time. I find myself wondering what games she is playing, whether she went to bed yet etc., etc. It is ridiculous how much I miss her. I don't think that she might be missing us because I know better, LOL. This is a 2 nighter ! That means I won't see Lily until tomorrow lunchtime when I pick her up. Not sure how I am going to survive, I think I have withdrawal of that face, that happy go lucky personality, that gappy smile, that shiny black hair, that loud and oh so clumsy little girl, the way she wakes up in the morning and crawls out of bed with Bunny attached firmly to her side, even though she is 8 now and believe it or not I miss the incessant chatter from her.
Thank goodness Rosie didn't stay too. She did tell me that she is going to next time, but I will believe it when it happens. It would be such a huge step for her and in some ways I would love for her to do it but in my heart I know I would hate it. She is only 3 and she is MY baby.
