The one benefit is that I wind up spending a lot of time thinking about what I miss. I missed Katie's snuggles, her smile, the way she snuggles in for her naps and for the night. I missed how she reaches her hand up when she wants you to hold her hand, and I missed the time we have together most afternoons after her nap and before Will wakes up.
I missed Will so much as well but I really enjoyed talking to him on the phone. He had lots of good questions for me about where I was, how we were going to get to the restaurant for dinner and how I was going to get home from the airport. I am thankful for Face Time as it was so fun to see him while we talked. I missed our talks, our songs before bed, his negotiations, and his excitement for doing anything and everything. I missed seeing him when he would come home from the park and tell me about his day.
I loved seeing them today and seeing their big smiles and receiving some fantastic hugs. It is good to be home!
Both kids love to clean! I wonder if this will continue...
