Boy, what a wild ride we've been on for the past month.
School ended and then Jake was gone two days later. It was a big change for our family. There were sad days. Tears. And Brooklyn talked about her Bubby all the time.
Then, we started to get used to our new lives with him gone. I hate to say it, but it was like we were all moving on in a way. Brooklyn and I made the most of our time together. And she stopped talking about him as much. We learned to be content with our lives as they were.
And now, it's crazy and exciting to think he's coming home in 3 days! Our lives will be changed again, but this time, for the better. It's always an adjustment for all of us that first week he's home. It takes some time remembering what it's like to be a family of four again, but it's always worth it. Our family feels complete. And Scot and I can finally sleep again.
Looking forward to hugging, kissing and snuggling with my little guy in a few days.
