first night away

Tonight’s the first night Greg and I will spend without Elliot. Gramma graciously offered to take him to her place for today and tomorrow to make it easier for us to get ready for camping. She’s got a lot planned for him – this morning a play in the park, a visit to her office, dinner with the ladies tonight, tomorrow a visit to Jumping Jiminy’s, then hopefully a big long nap before we pick him up.

We said goodbye this morning when we left for work, and it felt pretty normal. It’ll be this evening when we go home that I think I’ll feel a bit strange, and probably tomorrow morning as well. But we’ll be busy packing (after hopefully a sleep-in, pets willing), so I probably won’t be dwelling on it too much.

And I know he’ll have lots of fun with Gramma.
