I am so excited because in more than a week I will see my son for Christmas. I can hardly stand it. He is just excited except he is thinking about Christmas and Santa.
In eight days, I will go to SC to pick him up and bring him to RR with me for a week. To say, I am excited, it is the understatement of the year. I have planned a loose agenda for us because I still have to work while he is here. My boss was sweet to let me set up the spare room in our newsroom as a spot for JJ.

He will have his own space with a computer, note pad and other items to keep him occupied. And he will go out on several assignments so he can see what Mommy does when he is not around. I wanted him to see so he doesn't think I am just enjoying the good life without him.
It is hard talking to him on the phone because I want to blurt out that he is coming to see me. A recent conversation went like this:
Me: So what do you want for Christmas from me?
JJ: Honestly, I would love to come to RR to see you. I need a vacation. First grade is tough.
Me: Really? RR is kind of boring.
JJ: It's not boring with you there Mommy.
I am still amazed at how much he loves me. There are times I feel like the worst mom ever. But I know there is a sweet seven-year-old in SC who thinks I am awesome. I love my little guy. I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world.
