On the topic of parenting and Marlowe growing— I’m kidless for the next few days while Marlowe enjoys Disney world and whatever else Orlando has to offer. She’s up there with my dad, step mom, my half brother, and some of our long lost Canadian family. Okay fine, they’re not long lost, but it sort of feels that way with them living all the way in Canada. Ya know, ay?
This will be the longest that Marlowe will be away from the house— ever. Even when Alex and I were separated, she wasn’t away this long. Not ever. It’s scary letting go. I miss her after one day at Grandmas— but a few days in a row? Ooof. It will be hard. I’m happy for her though— she’s deserves all the fun in the world after this summer. The poor thing has been mostly stuck in here while I work. This is her break, her fun, she’s earned it. And for me, this is my chance to work, without interruptions. When she get’s back— she’s in for a second treat— some of the people I love most in the world will be coming here— a trip planned forever ago— long before I signed up for this cookbook. I’m looking forward to a few days where my main goal is to enjoy my family and our friends— and try to capture as many family photos as possible, because we need more of those. Mango farms here we come? I think so. Nicolle asked what to pack. I told her a rain jacket. Mango farms in the pouring rain? Sounds like an adventure to me.
Oh and speaking of growing. Check out this old post. Jeez, we all look different.
