Two weeks ago I had my first "social" overnight away from the boys. I spent Saturday and Saturday night in Chicago with lots of friends to celebrate Natalie's bridal shower and bachelorette party. We had lots of fun, and the boys did super great. Miles cried a little when I left, but was quickly distracted by an Elmo cracker. I could NOT wait to get home on Sunday to play with Miles, and he was happy to see me too.
This past week I had my longest business trip to date away from Miles -- about 2.5 days. It was sooooooooo long. Miles did wonderful being kept busy with a trip to see grandma and grandpa Sunday afternoon, school on Monday and then playing with grandma on Tuesday. I tried so hard to make it home before bedtime, but it didn't work out. FINALLY this morning I got a smiles, hugs, kisses and snuggles! Big "mwah" kisses over the phone were super cute, but I missed my little boy so much.
School transition got better after 2 weeks...still a few tears every once in a while, but nothing too major. Miles is acting more like himself in general, and his teacher commented on his vast vocabulary, knowing his colors, etc. so I think he's impressed her :) School naps are better, too, which makes our evenings a lot more fun.
