We have been 4 days without Hayes and I do miss him; and at the same time, I am SO happy for the time without him. He is so much a part of life here -- and I realize just how much energy and focus it take to raise a child, in particular MY child. It's incredible that so much goes into being a parent and I can't really see it until he's away for a bit. He's up at the lake with Mimi and Papa. What kid wouldn't absolutely love that? I know I did when it was me. But I also remember being so ready to see my mom and dad when they got there. We will be arriving late Friday; I truly can't wait to see him. It will be so welcome. It's true that absence makes the heart grow fonder.
