1) I have three children ages 5 & under, one of whom is still breastfeeding & needs me every 4-6 hours or so for a quick snack. This is both a blessing & a curse. I would NEVER change the fact that I breastfeed, but it makes it difficult to leave her for longer than a few hours. It required a bit of planning, pumping & two babysitters who weren't afraid to do meal times, play & bedtime with all three girls. Start to finish, I was away from the kids for a total of 18 hours.
2) My last attempt at going with the youth group to a concert was disastrous (more to post about this later). Needless to say, we never actually saw/heard any of the concert.
I'm incredibly thankful that I had the opportunity to go on this trip. Although we got home in the wee hours of the morning & it took me a few days to recover, it was well worth it. Not only did I get to see TobyMac, but I was able to spend some quality time with my lovely hubby, sans children. Plus, when I did get home, I was able to appreciate my little ones all the more.
