And we did.
Little Bird had a great visit to "tawifornia" (California) with her Dad. She got to spend some nice quality time with her Noni, Papa, Auntie Em, and her cousins. I mean, look at this:
Oh, me? Yep, I made it, too. I missed her. A lot. How'd I celebrate my "freedom" that so many people said I'd love? I napped!! I was sick, so I actually camped out on the couch. Knitting, drinking hot cider, and napping. I was unfamiliar with this napping phenomenon that I'd heard so much about. And I liked it. A lot.
Now she's back home with me and life returns to normal. Well, our normal, anyway. A great lesson for us both in understanding that she's just fine without me for a weekend; and I guess I was just fine, too.
