I have not cleaned my bathroom. I have not done any dishes. I have not cooked meals. I have not had a nap. I have not read to my children.
I have eaten out like I was on vacation. I have been shoe shopping with my best personal shopper. I have listened to my kids laugh so hard they couldn’t breathe. I have had my kitchen cleaned for me multiple times. I have lost Beckham only to find him wandering the neighborhood with a pretty qualified adult. I have allowed Grandpa to take over story time. I had the pleasure of witnessing my dad’s first stroll through Trader Joe’s. I also witnessed his first time stepping foot in a Walmart. It was momentous. I slugged through the corn maze so my kids could take Grandpa to the pumpkin patch. I can cross “get Sunday shoes for the kids” off of my list. I heard about Cooper beating Grandpa in chess, twice.
Grandpa, we miss you already. Take some time to recover, and then come again!
