When Hubs is gone (in Osaka for a business trip) I do things a little differently. I eat dinner insanely early (around five) with the kids instead of waiting until Hubs gets home. I take a bath at night with the kids instead of a quick shower in the morning. And I fall asleep holding the hand of the cutest three year old on the planet.
Which is exactly what I am going to do now.
Honey, I miss you when you are gone, but I wouldn't trade this time with the kids for anything in the world.
