As many of you know we have two weddings this holiday season. My sister in-law's is this weekend and my sister's is the weekend after New Years. Z is in both and I am a ball of nerves! Thankfully my mother is taking him today so that we can go down to the rehearsal alone. She and my dad will bring him to the ceremony, get him dressed and I will not see him until minutes before the wedding begins. I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
Z has been to the church, practiced rolling his little wagon down the aisle and did just great. I just don't know what Saturday will bring. He has been a real mommy's boy lately and after not seeing either of his parents for 24+ hours....he may be glued to my side and want to be held. I guess if that is what he wants...that is what he is going to get.
My other fear is the reception. He will be there as long as he can (since he will have not napped that day) and then he and my mom will head to the hotel which is about 15 minutes away. I have a feeling that this good-bye will not go well and know that this mama won't be able to really enjoy the open bar until Z is in the crib fast asleep ;) There is a good chance that I will be going back to the hotel with them, putting him to bed and try to get back before I miss all of the good stuff.
Many people have told me not to worry. "He may surprise you...", "He will be just fine...", "Whatever happens it will be adorable..." and I am sure these people are right but let's face it...two year olds are unpredictable and I want to be prepared for everything!
Have a good weekend everybody and wish us luck!!! I will post pictures and stories on Monday.
It’s Your Turn!
