Something odd has been going on in our house this week as Jonathan is no where to be found. He's not in his bed...
...or eating in his booster chair...
...or even playing with his toys.
How could this be? Did I leave him at Walmart after he insisted to be let out of the cart and I finally gave in? Did the proverbial gang of gypsies come by our house on a particularly trying day and I let them take him? Did we sell him on E-bay so we could take another tropical vacation?
OF COURSE NOT! Jonathan is actually spending the week in WV with my Mom and Dad. It's been relaxing for us and my parents are completely loving it. Jonathan is apparently having the time of his life if the conversations I've had with him on the telephone the past few days are any indication. And it has definitely been awesome to spend so much one-on-one time with Bryan!
BUT, I am ready for my little guy to come home! I meet my parents on Sunday to pick him up and I can't wait! I have realized that, even though my life has been completely hectic since Jonathan was born, I prefer it that way. I am happy to foster what I hope to be a strong bond between Jonathan and my parents and I am willing to let him go and stay with them again, but I miss his little smiling face, his boisterous laugh and his constant inquiry of "Mommy doing?" Luckily I have TONS of stuff to do over the next few days so I'm sure the time will pass quickly and that we'll have a lot of fun.
I am really looking forward to Sunday morning, though! :)
