The baby (and his parents) is in Maryland now. I heard him crying over the phone (so did the dog).It is hard to think of not seeing them for a bit of time. It will only be a month right now. Then a month again. Then six months.OW!
From my vantage point- it is not a good thing for the kids to move away. I would like them to be close so I can do things with and for them.
But for them....I think it is good for them to move away.
They are able to grown without someone looking over their shoulder at the mistakes that have to be made in order to be a good adult.
Still- I will miss their whispers and chats.
At least I will be here- where the leaves are beautiful and the sky is blue- in Kansas.
