Ava's "how long until" questions generally revolve around three things: 1. How long until dinner? 2. How long until Dad gets home from work? 3. How long until I get to wake up in the morning? This past week was particularly tough because Tim was traveling out of the country for SIX DAYS! This is the first time Tim has had to travel since Clara was born. I had no idea how we'd make it six whole days with out Tim. It was pretty exhausting and chaotic and the house was a mess most of the time and we had breakfast for dinner more times than I'd like to admit. But we made it (with the help of the grandparents - thank God for grandparents!).
Every day, multiple times a day, Ava confirmed her understanding of the number of days until Tim got home from his "work vacation". That's what I like to call it because any time you are free of your child responsibilities (feeding, diapering, putting to bed, etc.), you are on vacation. These days, going to the dentist while my mom watches the girls is a mini-vacation for me.
When Tim finally got home, a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. The girls were so happy to see him, but no one was happier than me.
Tim traveled to three countries in six days, including Hong Kong where he picked up this cute little kimono for Clara.
We love you Daddy! So glad you are home safe and sound.
