The family's gone, my mom and I took them to the airport yesterday when I got off work. It's always hard to say good-bye we were all in tears during our so long. Nicky was sweet, he told grandma not to cry when she went to give him one last hug.
My mom treated us to dinner at Grand Lux, then we took her home. We returned to the house, it was silent. Only scattered items, crumbs on the floor, and fingerprints remain. My house is pretty trashed, but I have a three day weekend coming up. So, I'll be able to get things back in order and catch up on sleep. I am very much looking forward to sleep.
From the moment they arrived until they left it was go, go, go. It can be overwhelming, and it doesn't take long for exhaustion to set in. It'd be so nice to have them close so we could see them a couple times a week at a much mellower pace. Maybe someday, but in the meantime, I wouldn't trade those chaotic couple weeks a year for anything.
Here's a few videos of my favorite boy.
He likes to sing and pretend the desk is a piano.
