well, no turning back no. they're on the road to texas.
this beauty showed up at mom's last night. ugh.
nothing says - hey baby wana move to texas with me - like this! especially when your boyfriend is sending you Hey Tells while he's driving and acting like he's a truck driver. yes Phil, your secrets out. lol. you are weird. 10-4. ha. so besides the uhaul - i wake up this morning to find this on my instagram.
ok wait - i promise i didn't get up at 9:43. i just took this on my phone. promise. i hope my boss doesn't read this. so yeah - cut straight to my heart. looks like we need to save up some money for an airline ticket! because 11 hours in a car with S&H. lawd i better bring me a box of hair color along. or get each of them an ipad. or better yet just buy henry a new carseat. homeboy's FAVORITE thing to do on long car rides is just blow his diaper. awesome. the clean up. the smell. oh it's my favorite. stella never did this - i swear it's JUST boys. just warming me up for when they grown up. and poop ALL the time. wait - how did we go from being sad they are moving to texas to poop.
back to the move..... so last night we again, ate our feelings at dicarlos with mom and DQ with dad and pam.
and now i will do the most appropriate sister thing ever and send them picture messages ALL the time of all the good stuff they are missing here. ha. so don't mind me when all my instagram pictures tag them two.
we have a love hate relationship. always have, always will.
SO - did i cry?! i have. no ugly parenthood or biggest loser cry, that's for sure.
i think i teared up the most watching them hug S&H goodbye. ugh. that was hard. lacie didn't want to stop hugging them. it's going to be hard to tell stella we can't just go over to nana's to see lacie and phil. but we can facetime ALL the time. so yay!
so we will take this picture and frame it and count the days until their first trip back. 49 to be exact. that's NOTHING people - nothing. we kept our morning routine today like it's any normal day, and we will continue sharing toothbrushes (we can send you guys one from our grab bag if you want!) and life as we know it will stay the same. i promise those aren't crying puffy eyes in that picture on the left. that's it's too damn early eyes. or i need coffee eyes. or why son did you wana party at 4:00 AM eyes. ok MAYBE a few tears eyes.....
good luck lacie and phil. don't get married down there or do anything crazy. don't bring us back a texas baby either. i'm not ready for that, nor do i think you are. i mean unless a texas baby comes with a texas accent. that'd be fun! and remember you two can't get married until your 30 anyways. oh yeah and PLEASE don't come back saying y'all and all that weird shit. talk normal. ok? and lacie if you start chewing - you're out of my will. no joke.
lacie - relax. breath. you will find a job quick and it will all work out. remember that there's give and take in every relationship. make phil put the toilet seat down. and make him take the small side of the closet. even though we know homeboy has a ton of clothes. oh yeah and PLEASE send me a picture of all the deer heads you unload. i need a good laugh.
phil - let lacie have her freak out. because she will have it, we all do. it's just because we are SO damn independent. but just keep reminding her that it's ok. we have a hard time accepting help from others, so don't push it. just always be there for her. oh yeah and good luck with that job down there. you BETTER take the first offer to move back to STL. GOT IT!
we love you and wish you the best!! safe travels. xoxo
