Is it Friday Yet?

Leo is now on a plane to Florida for a work conference....and we miss him tremendously already.

As he was kissing Isabella bye at the airport she started crying. With big, big tears.

Which broke my heart. And broke her daddy's heart.

I told her when we got home I would make her some cookies, which I did and that seemed to cheer her up quite a bit! Warm cookies straight from the oven tend to make everything better, don't they?

Tomorrow we have to run to base to get my iron pills and then I was thinking Starbucks and Hobby Lobby.

Because those two things always cheer us up. Me with an iced non-fat caramel macchiato no whip and Isabella a sugar cookie with sprinkles....yum! Then off to wander the endless aisles at Hobby Lobby.

With drink and cookie in tow.

Poor Isabella! Izzy gets sad when daddy leaves too!

Here's to a fun day of Starbucks and crafts.

Allikaye's Mama said...

That sounds fun...Hobby Lobby and Starbucks...2 of my fave places too! Wish Allikaye and I could go with you and your cutie!!

Wendi said...

My heart is breaking for her.
Poor Isabella!
Here is hoping your week flies by!
Except for the part of your week that includes Starbucks and Hobby Lobby of course.

It's so hard for the kiddos when Daddy has to go. We've been experiencing that quite a bit around here too. Cookies do help though!

Sounds like you have a good plan for "coping" while he's gone. ; ) Try to enjoy your girls week together.

Jill and Rick said...

I know it'll be a long week ~ just hope you can fill it up with enough fun stuff to help it pass a bit more quickly!

Love you guys!

amanda said...

it's crazy now how much they "get it" now isn't it?

hoping you girls have a busy schedule all week that helps the time fly till daddy is home!!

Our son refuses to leave his Daddy's side on the weekends and calls for him constantly when he's at work during the week. It's sweet, but I'm beginning to take it personally :-)

Hope you had a nice weekend!

Susan said...

Poor Bella! It is so hard. Mark was gone from Wednesday to Sunday and Austin was constantly asking for him. Oddly enough, when he would call he was "busy" and usually didn't want to talk to him on the phone. Three year olds!

Hera said...

Awww, that's the sweetest little story. Poor Bella. Hang in there honey. The week will be over before you know it!

Anti-Supermom said...

That does sound like the perfect day - I'd prefer mine sans kiddos though :)

Hope Leo knows that he is missed.

Coffees,treats and Hobby Lobby is my kind of day!! Daddy will be home soon Isabella, it is tough saying goodbye!

P.S. I love baking with Sophia except she gets so upset when we are, always something :)

Have a good Tuesday!
