Hello All! I hope this issue finds you well. We have worked hard this week to find articles, apps, activities, and recipes that we hope you will find useful.

I have to admit, I have a little mommy anxiety. Next week, my husband and I will be leaving our 17 month old son for the first time!!! Ekkkk! I have left him for a few days with just his dad and vice versa, but we have never left him without one of us. I know, I know, many of you are thinking, "this women is nuts!" but I can't help it. He is my first and only child, at this point, and I worry he will have a hard time while we are gone.

Now, some other details you must know---both my mother and my mother-in-law will be taking care on him at our home. He loves both his grandmas and I know he will feel comfortable in his bed at night. We are only going to be gone for 5 days...(I can only guess many of you are laughing at this point). I get it--I am being silly. Many parents travel all the time for work and have to be gone. Admittedly, I am a type-A person. I like to do things a certain way, I know what works, my way is the best, and above all--my son is use to 'how mommy' does it. As I type these 'wonderful' (I am sure at times annoying) qualities, I know...I must let go. My son will be well taken care of, he will be fed and clean, and he will get to have fun with his grandmas. I will repeat these thoughts in my head as soon as the worry starts to creep back in. We are off next week for some fun in the sun. Here's to hoping the first drink (or two) helps me relax and I know we will have a great time!

Have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy reading issue #31!
