My Mom Went Home
And of course, I miss her.
It really stinks to be so far away from the kids' only real grandmother. She loves the kids so much, it's crazy ridiculous.
We do get to see mom a lot. Every Christmas, Easter Break and for a long visit in the summer and more recently we've added the Columbus Day four-day weekend to our itinerary.
But it's never enough.
Dylan cried buckets this morning when she left, and last night while we were preparing the kids for her departure this was the exchange....
Nani: I'm going home tomorrow. Back to *my* house.
Dylan: I will go with you to your home.
Nani: Oh no, you can't come with me. I have to go back to work. What will you do all day when I'm at work?
Dylan: I will watch TV!
