So we are starting to feel the effects of daddy being away. It’s taken us some time to get to this point, because he isn’t home a whole lot during the weeks anyway, but the boys have been very clingy and mopey today. So we spent the morning chilling out on the couch watching Mary Poppins, a childhood favourite of mine. An easy dinner and early bed for them made the night a little more bearable.
My bedtimes have suddenly changed from 7.30-8.30 to sometime past 11 in the space of a week, just because bed suddenly doesn’t seem at all attractive without someone to share it with. So here I am, rugged up on the couch waiting for a phone call from my husband.
He has managed to stay in insanely good contact while he’s been in remote Vietnam. He has had internet access most of the time, which means he has sent back videos of the school and of the creek for Nathan to watch. Tonight Nathan had two videos and a story instead of his normal three stories.
They are really growing up super quickly. We saw granddad yesterday from Perth, which they were extremely excited about. For those of you who haven’t seen them lately, here are some photos.
