Dorothy was right, there truly is no place like home! I flew JetBlue last night and while the Direct TV in-flight was a great distraction, the fact that I was still over 2,000 miles away from my baby was a hard pill to swallow. I got home around midnight and my little munchkin was fast asleep. I restrained myself from running into her room and shouting, “I’M HERE!!!”. Instead, I just rubbed her back and whispered, “Mommy loves you” before going to bed.
This morning, I woke up and rolled over to see her smiling face looking at me. My husband had propped her on the bed so she would be the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes. She was smiling from ear to ear. I quickly grabbed her and hugged her so tight. I’m home! I can’t wait to play with her all weekend to make up for lost time. Hurry up, Friday.
