Over the past two weeks, Casey has been in California and Texas. When I’m not at work, I’ve spent a day here or there with Addie and Vivi. Instead of leaving me the stress of taking on a full time job and full time parent, Casey made arrangements so that Vivi and Addie spent most of their time at friends’ houses.
I also spent a week last month in Mexico away from my girls. Over the past month, I’ve missed nearly 2.5 weeks of their lives. When Addie and Vivi are away, there are some things that I miss more than others. For instance, I miss hugs far more than I miss changing poopy diapers, and I miss being called “daddd-ee-y” by Vivi more than I miss picking up the smashed tomatoes off the floor under Vivi’s seat.
