Since Katie began preschool, Matthew has been truly feeling her absence.
It started on the first day, when at pickup, he squealed at the sight of her from across the room.
But last night, he ran up to her twice and hugged her with the kind of jubilance that is reserved just for toddlers.
He has always loved her, but this is different…more urgent, somehow.
It’s as though he wants to hold her close so she doesn’t disappear.
There’s something magical about the sight of his chubby arms around her waist and the way she showers the top of his head with kisses.
And it brings me to tears to see that connection between them.
One of my greatest wishes as their mother is for them to have a closeness that weaves them together…a closeness that outlasts me and Craig.
Their connection brings me such tremendous joy.
Okay, your turn!
What brought you joy this week?
Whether it was something small or large, I would so love to hear about it.
