That Makes Me So Happy...

We were driving out to four peaks Friday night for a quick little overnight camping trip. My conversation with Madden went like this:
Me: "Madden Guess What? Mommy doesn't have to go to work this next week so I'll get to stay home with you!"
Madden: "I not have to go to Taya's house and I stay home with you?"
Me: "Yep! I don't have to go to school so me and you and brother Kolten get to stay home together."
Madden: "Oh Mom that makes me so happy!!"

I got a little teary eyed right then and there. I feel like I have forgotten what it feels like to be a stay at home mom. And most of the time I think the boys don't even care, but this little conversation shows me that they do care! I'm SO excited to have a week break and to spend some quality time with my little guys! On our agenda for the week:
Lots of park trips
Grocery store trips
Going to try and find a pumpkin patch to get a pumpkin
Making homemade breadsticks, cinnamon rolls and cookies!
Go on lots of bike rides
Watch some movies and cuddle
Take some naps! Yay!

I hope everyone has a great fall break! And I will be putting our blog private the end of this week so if you haven't sent me your e-mail address already please leave me a comment!

Tyson said something similar to me when he began realizing that I wouldn't be leaving every day anymore. He said, "Daddy go to work, and mommy stay home with Tyson?" It totally made me cry to see his face light up when it clicked. This time goes by SO FAST with them.
