Day 63 - Saying goodbye to family

My mom spent the weekend with us. I love it when she and my dad come for visits. It's nice to have help with Little Elvis and it's so great to see how much they love him.

I had been looking forward to the visit all week -- there were a couple of long days where finding time to eat was difficult.

I also dread when they come though, because saying goodbye is so difficult. And I was really bad this time -- I started crying Saturday night and she wasn't even leaving until Sunday afternoon.

I feel so guilty that they can't see him (or us) as often as we would like.

This time my mom and I just cried as it neared time for her to leave. We didn't say anything, which is good because I would have cried harder.

We're going home for a visit in May, and they'll get lots of Little Elvis time. I'm sure I'll cry again when we have to leave.

Do you any of you experience this?

I hate leaving my parents too - we only live 3-1/2 hrs away, but it sucks that they don't get to see my kids as often as they should.
