Okay, I'm ready for her to come home now.

July 1, 2010


It’s been 3 weeks since we dropped Leah off at camp. Or a hundred. I’ve lost count. Benjamin, however, knows EXACTLY how long his big sister has been gone and that is FOREVERRRRRRRR and he is ready for us to go and get her.

“Go get my sister, Mommy.”

You got it, buddy. In just a few days.

Husband and I were talking last night about how we didn’t miss her until now and is that okay? I think it is. The pictures below are stolen (quite outright) from the camp’s website (thus the crappy resolution, sorry) so we’ve gotten to see her happy and having fun and this is good because waiting for letters from her and trying to get any details out of her in those letters is a futile, futile exercise in futility.

Before she left we needed some time apart. You know that feeling. But now? After seeing the fun and big goofy nutjob smile on her face? I want to see her and that smile and have some fun with her again.

Six days. Six days, buddy and we’ll go get her.

    With you on the mid 3rd week being when you start to miss daughter.
    We sent eldest (12yr old) to UK/EU with her nana, uncle, aunt and cousin for 6 weeks. First 3 weeks was fine (although l’il sis missed her terribly the first 2 weeks).
    After the 4th week, I simply wanted her home, like yesterday.
    Like you, it was not helped by the lack of correspondence.
    Hang in, that first hug is just AWESOME

      Well, hi there! 🙂 Nice to see you. What is it about that third week?! Man. Certainly looking forward to that first hug. Notsomuch the camp laundry. Oy.

    Oh man, 3 weeks seems like forever. But, at least the end is near.

      Yes. Now I get wonder what “re-entry” will be like. Should be interesting.

      And WHY are you up at 3am?!

    Re-entry was interesting… parts of our life had gotten used to her not being there! Now, when we talk about something that happened while she was away, I forget she wasn’t there for it, teehee.
