I am happy summer holidays have finally begun.
My kids are finally at an age that I enjoy.
Most of the time.
They are finally at an age when they can do alot for themselves and don't need Mommy for absolutely everything.
As much as I love the baby stage, I really like right now.
the first weekend of summer vacation was spent at my favourite place in the Universe.
I will admit I was very anxious/apprehensive/sad to spend time there without my daddy, but sucked up the tears and successfully made it through another "first".
We did it.......
but yes, I still looked many times to see if dad would be pulling up on his motorcycle. I did think of dad complaining about barking dogs every time Studley barked at nothing. I did want to see dad sitting in his lawn chair with his shorts, collared tshirt, white socks and sneakers. I missed sitting with him on the boat.
But I am sure he was there.
There is no way he would miss out on the fun.
Just because he wasn't there physically, doesn't mean he wasn't there....
I mean, really......there is no way he would miss out on his son doing this.
And his granddaughter doing this for the very first time.
He was there.
