My man has been out of town all week.

Goodness! I have missed him.
Back in the day when the kids were little I used to hate it when he left town, but it was different.
I missed him, but I also missed his help.
Now that the kids are more self-sufficient I miss him even more! I miss seeing him munch his cereal at the breakfast table. I miss teasing him about that old t-shirt he is always wearing around the house. I miss walking by him and giving his rear a little smack. I miss laughing and talking, and dreaming.
I miss my friend.
For you young mom's (meaning Mom's with young children and babies) you are at that time in life when you are so physically busy that much of the conversation between you and your hubby is often just a passing of information. I want you to know it's get better! Eventually the "physical" part of parenting eases up, the emotional part of parenting heightens a bit, but I don't believe you will be as physically tired as you are right now!
So now that I am not running around searching out sippy-cups and changing diapers, and making sure that someone isn't playing in the toilet, I have time to actually talk to my husband. I like to call it "conversate". The Mister always laughs at me when I use that word...
His flight arrives at 11:00am and I am very HOPEFUL that his flight will be on time.
And that's why we make such great friends, cuz he's the sensible one, and I'm the dreamer.
