Your third airplane trip in the past three months – what a little jet setter – except this one I’m not along for the adventure. Just you and your mom.
And boy do I miss you guys! The house is indeed very clean and spacious without your toys littered everywhere (on the play mats only of course otherwise we donate it). But it’s missing the little rumbles of your feet racing around the flat and laughter that usually follows. And of course your mother’s ever-present one-liners about me…
In the days leading up to your departure, I was looking forward to the little things like sleeping in the big bed, playing games whenever, going to the gym, single-life stuff. But I realized I was missing the big stuff – like my life with you guys.
So I got my fix in and figuring out ways just to kill time. Your mom left me with a short list of things I can do around the house, but I get the sense she wants me to use my initiative to come up with other things. Very clever of her because I technically can’t ever “complete the list” and be free.
It sounds like you’re having a great time with your grandparents, and that’s all I can ask for. I want you to have a relationship with them because it’s something I didn’t have a chance to experience due to circumstances. And life, from my experience, is all about the relationships in them. Nurture them!
