Today is an exciting day for me! It’s been years too long. Years without seeing him. Years without a hug. Years without the mischief look in his eyes. How did I manage? I’m not sure…
First things first, Mr. B has to see the Orthopedic Surgeon just to make sure things are progressing as they should be with the foot.
After that, I am driving about 45 miles away to see Kid #3! I have not seen him since he left for his last deployment to Iraq. He has been home almost two years and he was in Iraq for almost a year. We keep in touch but there is nothing comparable to being able to hug a kiddo. On the move back to Ohio, I tried to get in touch with him but it didn’t happen due to phone problems. I was hoping to stop and see him before his work shift at the hospital. Today is the 7th day I have been back and have yet to see him. Sometimes it seems like “life” gets in the way. But not today.
Did I mention he has a beautiful daughter that I haven’t seen in the last 2 1/2 years? This is the precious little girl. The same one that looked at her Daddy while he was talking, put her whole hand in his mouth and said “Be Quiet!” She is already taking after her Daddy’s mother! I will let her Daddy have all the glory for the time she used Crayola’s to exercise her creative talents using the screen of his new large TV as an easel.
