Missing word

Although I had an amazing time with Mr. CE last week during our "vacation". In a way it was a week of (re)discovery. A week to rediscover all the love I have for my husband, the laughter I had been unable to hear for awhile, joys unknown and the ability to look forward to our future as a family. All that jammed packed into one week...

Even though the week went by quickly, it wasn't quite fast enough. I (we) missed JC terribly. His smiles, giggles, humor and better yet, his hugs. On Saturday we awoke early to pick him up. As soon as we walked into the door , I heard my favorite word ever. The word that will carry me through all the good and bad times for the rest of my life.

"Mommy!"

The one word that was missing from my week.
The all powerful word, "mommy".

I love this gig, motherhood...

Sweet... I love getting a break from the kids, but I love seeing them after that break even more! ;o)

This made me tear up! I was going to call you any manner of names for making me cry, but I realize that it's not your fault I'm a weepy mess.;) It's true, though. Best gig in the world.
