But I am suddenly nostalgic, because today my universe shifted. Now, for two days a week, both our children will be away for 6 hours at school.
Now the children are receding away from us, it seems, out into the bigger ocean where we can't always see them or hear what they say or catch them before they hurt themselves.
It's very weird. I didn't cry, but I feel strange and clingy.
My husband and I ate two meals alone today: lunch while the children were at school, and then dinner out to celebrate our anniversary. A milestone day in more than one way.
