on march 25th, i watched silly monkey walk down the steps and into his dad’s car.  he just returned home today – nearly two weeks later.  and i have missed the bajeezus out of him.  in fact, i can barely stop hugging him and telling him “i love you”.

it was a painful two weeks.  not physically, of course, but even after almost four years of the “monkey go back & forth” game, my heart still aches b/c i miss him so much when he’s gone.  i never thought i’d be this parent.  i always figured i’d be the parent that had to get away, decompress and focus on something else.  but, it turns out that i’m the one who could spend every day, all day with her child and still want more.  it’s the time away that drives me crazy.  not the opposite.

DAY TWENTY NINE:  but he’s home.  and now, all is right in the world…

mommy.  i’m feeling a little bit sad.
sad?  why are you feeling sad?
b/c i just missed you so much.
i missed you, too, monkey.  and now we get to be together again!  i feel happy.
yea.  i’m done feeling sad now.  i love you.
and i love you!
