Seems, Mommy isn't the only one missing Daddy this week! Here is an email that Mary (age 4)asked me to send to Daddy today:
How much will you be at the race? I couldn't remember how much days. When you
get back, I was thinking we could get ice cream together.
P.S. I asked Mommy to type this letter to you. I wanted to know if you had a
mailbox at the fire station. She said you could get emails.
Here is Daddy's reply:
Mary, I am at the races today and tomorrow. Hopefully I will get home in time to
see you before you go to bed, otherwise I will check on you.
I work at the fire station on monday and then I am off till saturday. We can get
ice cream on tuesday or wednesday when it is nice.
If that isn't enough to break a mother's heart, my two-year old son then came up to me and said, "Mommy how much longer?" ('till what...mommy gets off the computer?!)
Me: "For what sweetheart?"
Ben: "'Till Daddy?"
We are really missing Daddy! In addition to his working lots of overtime to help make ends meet, my husband also is on the Rescuse Squad for the Kansas Speedway. Now, NASCAR and INDY races aren't every weekend, they aren't even every month, so it's hard to complain about him working something that he sooooo loves to do a handful of times a year. Besides, marraige is about sacrificing for one another and he is certainly doing his part so that I can stay at home with our little ones. But, man, we sure do miss you Daddy!
