Leaving - Baby Steps in High Heels

Leavin’ on a jet plane …

That song always comes into my head when I have a trip, even when I don’t have to fly. And, since I take a lot of trips, I find that song playing in my head quite often. It’s always bittersweet, and I almost always try to change the words (Leavin’ on a jet plan … but soon I will be back again). If I don’t change the words, I am doomed to tears. Okay, well, tears are probably guaranteed either way.

Pathetic, I know, but it’s hard to leave Baby behind. Even for Jamaica.

That’s right, the day has come … vacation. And, I’m …

Leavin’ on a jet plane.

Leaving my computer (aka, my office) behind.

Leaving my boots and coats and scarves at home.

Leaving my cell phone turned off.

Leaving laundry, dishes and diapers to others for a few days.

Leaving all alarm clocks disabled.

Leaving my child in loving and capable hands.

Even so, I’m also leaving a piece of my heart (and a bit of my sanity) with her.


  1. OK well it will be a sacrifice but ya know I could go in your place lol

  2. Kudos. I have yet to do that.

  3. Jamaica! YAY! You will have so much fun! It will be hard to leave her, but still it will be so much fun! :)

  4. So. Jealous. I want pictures when you get back. Please.

  5. I hope you are having the best time and not missing baby too badly! :)

  6. That song always pops in my head too! Enjoy your well-deserved vacation. :0)
