When Papa is Away... We go to Grandma's to Play!
Papa had a work trip that took him far away for over a week. I get very uncomfortable being home alone, which has only intensified since having a baby. So what a perfect opportunity to spend a long week at my mom's house in Southern Utah. Our trips down there are usually so short so it was nice this time to have almost a full week. Going home is so relaxing for me and exciting for Totes. Grandma has a nice big yard with a pool and my brother has two very high-energy dogs that Totes loves watching run all over the place. And with my mom, sister, younger brother and his wife now living in the same house, there's usually always someone there to keep me company and most importantly, to keep Totes entertained.
As much as I love technology and loved being able to stay so connected to Papa from far away, you can't explain to a one year old why he can't touch his Papa and can only look at him through the phone. By the end of the week he was definitely showing his frustrations so we had to limit our FaceTime calls. It made the reunion super sweet.
