ok, I have the blues!!!!
I am one of those ninny moms...

my daughter has fallen into a magical hole...

just like Alice...
to a week long camp...

that all sixth graders go to, up in the mountains...
I know she will have the best time, and my son has three friends that are going as counslers, but I am a big ninny and would love to keep her with me forever!!!!

so I am trying to stay busy!!!
I am going to go stock up my booth, and maybe try to make some jewelry...you can still feel sorry for me...lol...


  1. Oh Stefanie, be strong girl, a week is not that long. I know you are missing your little "Alice".

  2. Hi Steph
    Hang in there, little by little they grow and it seems farther away from you but they come back! I have 5 daughters, I know... I enjoy them more now than ever

  3. Hi Stafanie, I remember those days! I remember when we lived in Cali and my boys went to the week long camp in the mountains. It was so hard to see them go. I just tried to stay busy and even sent a card to each of them. It will be over before you know it! Traci

  4. I remember the first time my son went away to camp. I couldn't stand it at first and missed him so much. But, I stayed busy and kept telling myself that I had to let him go. He's 36 years old now and still my big baby, so it never changes.

    She is precious.



  5. How gorgeous is she? Hang in there my friend and if you need to keep yourself busy you can come visit with me...I'd love that!

    I was just perusing through your shop...I need some money...sigh!


  6. My heart goes out to you...Mine is fixing to move away in January and I am dying inside...I wish she was only going for a week

    *hugs* Be strong mom

    Blessings Kelsie

  7. You might be surprised and enjoy the quiet!!


  8. Awwww mama, she'll be back before ya know it. :-)
    Cute girl!


  9. Hi Stefanie,

    Your daughter is very sweet and know how hard it is when they go away.
    A week will go fast and I hope that you get to keep busy so the time will go fast.


  10. Checking in on you Sweet Friend...the week is almost over! :)


  11. Hi Stephanie... :-)

    Oh my gosh... My daughter looked forward to sixth grade camp for YEARS... I took her and all her things to school and watched her leave on the bus.....as soon as it pulled away I started bawling and cried for HOURS.... Such a wimpy Mum....well....it seems I have a wimpy daughter tooooo..... she called in about four hours.... BAWLING for me to come and get her. Poor kid. She was soooo homesick. It was a very long drive and it was dark (and I had no idea where to go) so I agreed to go pick her up in the morning. She was standing in the office window with the SADDEST look on her little face when I got there. We still laugh about it.

    Hopefully your daughter will have a great time and savor those memories for years and years to come.

    She's a beauty, by the way!


  12. G'morn Stephanie ~ Oh, how quickly they grow ... & soon you both will have beautiful adult lives to share with one another ... yet the initial letting go is the hardest. Stay busy, time passes too quickly ...

    Have a beautiful Thanksgiving ~
