The Pods have left. The "little kitchen" and toys are gone. Our house, and all the remnants of having two extra adults and one toddler in it for two months, belongs to just us again. Soon the remnants will be cleaned up and we'll take advantage of the empty spaces and do some re-decorating and a bit of early spring cleaning. Then we'll get back to our normally crazy life. It'll be a little quieter, the bathroom will be free more often, I won't find sippy cups in the sink anymore. Katie, Mark & Charlotte and all their belongings have moved into their new home, which means they've moved out of mine.
I'm glad ~ really I am. It will be nice to get things back in order again. It will. But I'm sure going to miss hearing "What doin' Gwama?" I'm going to miss seeing Bill's face light up when he heard "Ampa, how 'bout coffee!" I'm going to miss toys in the tub and baby dolls on the living room chairs. But most of all I'm going to miss this sweet little face every morning and every night. She just makes me smile!
