Saying Goodbye

My mom was with us all last week watching Evan. She left on Saturday, and I had a hard time letting her go. Some days when I leave for work, Evan will grab on to my neck and cry and won't let me put him down. That is what I wanted to do to my mom, but since I know how much it breaks my heart when Evan does that to me, I tried to contain myself. I shed a few tears and gave her a big hug. Most days I wish Utah and Virginia were closer together. Darn geography. Evan had a wonderful week and loved being with his grandma. He didn't even seem to care when I left for work each day. He would just wave and blow me a kiss. I can't blame him though--grandma was making sure he had a lot of fun. They baked cookies, went swimming, read books and played all day. The week was filled with fun and lots of love. My mom did a wonderful job taking care of Evan and took great care of Bryan and me, too. So well, in fact, that I offered her a full-time job, but she declined. It seems my dad needs her to help take care of him, too. She is definitely in demand!

Hi Mindy and Bryan! You don't know me too well but I'm Clark Evans' wife. I hope you don't mind me leaving a comment on your blog. Clark and I are trying to keep better tabs on all his H.S. friends so we googled your names and found you. Looks like you're doing well. Evan is getting so big. I loved the pictures of his first haircut. Very cute.

Hahah! I bet she just told him "you can stop crying now, your mom is gone." Worked on me. :)
