Did I Miss Them?
My eldest asked me a day or two ago if I'd missed the tots over my month off. I think she was a little taken aback by my unequivocal "No". I'm fond of them, and all, but I've treasured every bit of my time off, and apart from acquiring a few professional items (how fun is it to have to shop for your business in toy stores, I ask you??), they have not been on my mind. But today, when I walked down the street with little George's hand in mine, and listened to Zach's much-increased vocabulary in that adorable toddler voice, I felt a surge of happiness wash over me. I do love these little guys! Yes, I'm glad to be back, and yes, I did miss them!
