OK, I need to revise the highlights of our vacation to add one final bullet:
– coming home from work tonight and hearing Sophie, as I’m getting out of the car, screaming in excitement at my arrival. When I walked in the door, she ran over to me and gave me such a big hug I lost my balance and almost fell on my ass.
That was a really super end to a great vacation.
On the other hand, when I called Chloe to hear her voice after one whole week without hearing her voice, she tossed me aside after one minute because she didn’t want to miss her TV show. I suspect that as much as she loves me, she won’t be nearly as excited to see me when I pick her up next Saturday as I’ll be to see her. Oh well. One kid out of two ain’t bad.
