Now this adage is not entirely true, because it’s hard to imagine that I could be fonder than I am already of my two sons. However, it would certainly be true to say that absence makes you appreciate each other more, as evidenced by the arrival home of the children tonight after a weekend with their dad. My youngest and I snuggled up and got cosy whilst he related tales of the weekend’s activities and showed me his history project. It always feels like the house is pleased to have them home again – the silence and peace when they are away can seem eerie sometimes; once they are safely home again, even when they are sleeping soundly, the silence has a comforting fullness somehow. So make the most of the time they are away – not just to recharge your batteries with some “me time”, but for the fond reunion when they return to you.
