Ben, our youngest, is doing something tonight for the very first time. He is spending the night with our friends....without Ethan or Sarah. I actually can't remember a time that he spent the night anywhere except Grandma's and Grandpa's house, and he has never stayed by himself.
I have to say that there were just a few huge, monstrous, alligator tears but he wiped them away and put on a smile before they left.
I know that he is having a ball, but when they look at you with those great big eyes and say, "But I want to go with you, mommy", it melts your heart just a little.
I have since talk to my friend and she said that he is just fine. I knew he would be because he loves it there and he loves them!
In the meantime, our house is exploding with 6th grade boy energy and we are having so much fun. We spent the last two hours at the Y and I got my run in (whew). Ethan has two friends over and they are ready for a night of pizza, chips and the wii!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
