This whole having my parents across the nation thing is really turning out to be a bummer…especially now that we have kids.
Having them here for a month was, in many ways, so comforting and normal for me. And for the kids? Oh, it was more than that.
Quint sat in my Dad’s lap every day. In the red chair. Snuggling, laughing, playing, talking, watching TV, sharing a snack or some of my Dad’s tea. It was a ritual they started and kept each day they were together.
And both kids still ask for them DAILY. Nina? Papa? Me see Papa? Me see Nina? Nina home? Papa home?
Why do we have to live apart from the people we love and that love us most in the world? So sad…
Especially around the holidays?
We’re missing them…
(and since I know you read the blog...love to you both! We miss you every day!)
