We left her in Brampton with her grandparents for a couple of days. We did this for a couple of reasons, but the biggest one is that we want her to have a real, authentic grand parent experience. Both Rhona and I had grandparents that lived in the UK. That's just the way it was. To see them was a huge thing. Autumn has the luxury of weekly visits by Rhona's parents, and semi-regular visits by mine. We think that's important.
Still, we miss her. Last night, we inexplicably watched Monsters Inc because the cute little girl "Boo" reminded us of Autumn. Watching a cartoon monster play peek-a-boo with Boo made us miss her even more. But I know I appreciated the movie a little more.
Funny how things hit you differently. Here's a picture.
