to a t

today
a full day
we were heading
to the city
hubs has a biz trip
leaves early tomorrow
so staying overnight there
we decided to
treat
ourselves
to a feast of fondue
the kids loved the
bread
apples
chicken
and of course
the chocolate
what's not to love?
we moved on to
the place daddy
would lay his head
traveling
for business
happens a few times
a year
and the kids take
it in stride
but not tonight
tears
flowed from the big girl
she was so sad
the little big guy
was so sweet
he kept reminding her
of what daddy said
"he'll be back before we know it"
and once she fell asleep
on the ride home
he whispers
"i miss daddy"
but he is right
he'll be back before we know it
and then there was
this cloud
hanging over hubs and i all day
the one we hoped would not return
but it is here
the dreaded
temperature
we have gone over two
maybe even three
months
nothing
then today
it all unfolded
like a flashback
all the signs
all the symptoms
they are here
and so we start
the watch
and the wait
to see what this
round brings
this i do know...
we miss daddy
hurry home!

Fondue - Good. Daddy gone - bad. I am so grateful my husband doesn't have to travel for work. I'm sure it will go by fast!

Awww, so sweet. Daddy business trips can stink sometimes. Other times, I SO enjoy the time with just the kiddos and me!
I hope the little guy starts feeling better and SOON!
