Daddy comes home for a visit, October 2006

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~And now the wordful part~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know those times when you tell yourself “I’m not going to cry” even though you know just how its going to end up? That was the day. Daddy was home, albeit for only 2 short weeks. I absolutely love this photo, and I was so glad that someone was thoughtful enough to catch this moment for us. I slept so well those two weeks, simply from the relief of knowing my husband was in the bed beside me. You wouldn’t believe how often I freaked out when someone knocked at our door, praying silently that this wasn’t a pair of men in dress blues with a letter for me. What can you do in two weeks? Well, attend a few parties, love on the kids a whole lot (meet the daughter you haven’t even seen in person), and eat….a..lot. My hubby had actually written a list of the foods he’d like to enjoy while he was here. I think we made it through all but one or two items on the list. Two weeks was never so short.

Wordful Wednesday can be found at Seven Clown Circus
