I have 3 more hours with my kids. That is until next time. It seems so weird to know that I’ve been able to spend almost 4 full days with them and now it is over. We will leave. They will go back home. We will go back to life. I’ve already caught myself this morning thinking of starting a to-do-list for when I get home. Already thinking of what’s next and forgetting I only have 3 hours left.
Whenever I visit I know that I will remember and cherish every moment I had with Amos & Story, but I find myself wondering if they will. I find comfort in knowing that Amos and Aaron are totally buddies. He prefers him 100% of the time over me. He wants to be with him all the time. A few of the nights Aaron even crawled into Amos’ twin bed and slept with him. They have added to their bond from May for sure.
Story on the other hand hasn’t wanted much to do with Aaron. I am wondering how many white men she comes in contact with. Maybe she is just a little confused and scared of him. So that has created lots of mommy-daughter time! I have loved getting to know her more and love on her lots. She is so sweet and so spoiled rotten. We love it!!!
Good bye’s are not easy. I dread them. I usually have a good hard cry and then I’m good to go. Not much I can do about it. I cant take them home with me. They must stay and I must go. That’s just the way it goes. So although we dread it, we know it is coming and we just go with it.
I think I’ll be back in March. Excited about that possibility!
So, for now I’m watching Story nap beside me while Amos and Aaron are on a walk around the neighborhood. We will cherish our 3 more hours until we must say good by.
I’ll leave you with this picture. Since Story’s napping and Amos is gone with papa I found another cute kid around here and took a picture with her!
