My 8 year old DD went to my sister's house for the summer. My sister lives about 10 hours away. DD had been gone since the 4th day after school let out. (somewhere around the 3rd of June) I thought I'd be ok with her going for the summer, she did it last year and I was ok. This year she wanted to stay until August. Granted, she has lots of kids to play with there (my sis has 6, 4 of which are still at home), and a park with a pool across the street. Here, she has no one to play with, except the chickens and the dog. But I miss her!! The house is too quiet. I miss her coming up and hugging me for no reason. I miss her laughter and her giggling. I don't go get her until Aug 17, her birthday. She's going to have her first ever birthday party at my sisters house when I get there. Shhh! She doesn't know!
As of now, they are all in Florida. My sister called to let me know they made it ok and Dakota was having a blast with the pool. She knows I worry. Hey, I know how people drive on the interstate!! *because I'm one of them!* Dakota didn't want to come to the phone to talk to me cause she was in the pool. I told my sister not to make her get out, let her enjoy it.
I don't know...I'm sorry for the long and probably most boring post on this site. Does anyone else miss their kids this much when they go visit somewhere? I'm not a clingy mom or anything. I just miss my Little Miss Attitude.
Gonna go mow the yard......
