Today is Jack's first day away from home. He's 2 1/2 years old (tomorrow) and for the very first time he is away from mom and dad. He is staying over at Brian's parents house in Sun Prairie - Nana and Papa and I am sitting here missing him so much. This house is silent.
It's a different sort of silence than when he is at daycare. I know I have to haul ass and try to get things accomplished before picking him up by 11:45 but today is different; I can take my time. I can reflect, get organize, feed and play with Bailey and lay around. I am going to sew, shop, pay bills, play, lay and watch the last Oprah episode again and weep. It's one of those emotional days that leaves me here - reflecting how wonderful my little boy is and how he brightens my day with his noise.
I hope this quiet day keeps me busy for I dont want to realize how silent it truly is without my little guy for much longer.
