“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – Winnie the Pooh
In his 22months on this planet I’ve spent 2 nights away from Isaac. 1 for a wedding and 1 for an overnight business stay and separate occasions. This year I have a couple of long weekends and then the big one.. two weeks for work in a different country.
The long weekends are a couple of nights, one he’ll be with his Daddy and one with his Uncle so I’m not too concerned. The two weeks though… I am dreading. He’ll be here with his daddy and nana so that part is covered but its TWO WEEKS away from my world. What if he forgets who I am? Or thinks I’ve left forever?!! What am I going to do without my little shadow running after me?!! What if something goes wrong and I’m not here?!!
Its going to be tough. I will be pouring my heart out here frequently in the lead up. I’m pretty sure though we’ll survive… and coming home after those two weeks will be the best feeling. It’ll be home.
“Coming home to my family afterward makes the work richer, easier and more fun.” –Edie Falco
