Missing You

Since we didn’t leave the bonspiel on Sunday till almost 4pm, by the time I got home, only Lisa was still awake, which meant that the kids wouldn’t see me until I got home from work yesterday. They were actually over at a neighbor’s house playing, and when I walked in and said hello, Evan apparently perked up and started trying to find his way across the toy-strewn floor to me. Ellie was quicker and came and gave me a quick hug. I finally found Evan and picked him up, and he just put his head on my shoulder and cuddled with me for a good solid minute or two (aww!), which for a rambunctious 16-month-old was a long time.
It was good to see them again, and I am cherishing the fact that they still do miss me when I’m gone.
