We’ve been a child short since Sunday.
My parents asked if Talina could stay behind for a few days when we came home from visiting my family for a milestone birthday celebration. We quickly said yes as we knew Grandpa and Grandma would have just as much fun as Talina if not more.
This has definitely been the case. We have received numerous pictures from Grandma indicating they were having a wonderful time.
On our end it has been different. The drive home was much quieter without our little chatterbox, I wasn’t quite sure I liked it. 😉
I’ll admit my heart sank a little this morning as I glanced at her open bedroom door and empty bed. Even though I knew that she was in capable hands I missed her big-time. Thankfully, she is coming home today! (Woohoo!)
I’m certain this is one of the steps incorporated in me letting go bit by bit, and day by day.
This past day has reminded me of the following tidbits;
1.) Treasure even the shortest moments you share with your kids.
2.) You can never have too many pictures of them.
What advice do you have for a Dad that is starting to recognize that his kids are growing up? I would love to hear it!
