Mom’s Back!

My son didn’t sleep well last night. I think he was too excited about Mom being on her way home.

Kai was very happy as he left for school in the morning. He knew that he was finally going to see Mom again.

And when school let out, she was waiting for him.

He was happy to see her. He told her he had missed her.

And he was also happy to get the presents that she brought back from Japan, including his coveted maze ball.

But in the midst of all the excitement, he also had a bad day in some respects.

I don’t know if it was a coincidence, but he had his worst day in school in many weeks. He also had a terrible piano lesson after playing so nicely the past two weeks while Mom was away.

Perhaps it was the excitement. Maybe he was distracted by the presents. It could have been just the change in routine of having Mom back.

Whatever it was, it will be interesting to see if settles down again over the next few days.

My wife was tired after her long journey back. She went to bed early so Kai and I played with a chemistry game that Mom brought back from Japan.

He enjoyed playing with me.

But he also talked about looking forward to playing with Mom tomorrow. And trying out a new miniature golf course this weekend now that she is finally back.

For Kai, his performance at school did not matter. He piano lesson was no big deal. This was the day that Mom came back. And that made it his best day in weeks.


  1. A big hug from momma...that is what matters most :)

    1. Yes, indeed. He had a nice big smile on his face when he walked out of school and saw Mom.

  2. awwwww so sweet
    I bet the excitement of having mom back was what disrupted the day and I am sure he will get back into the swing of things in a few days

    1. He was definitely excited... hopefully he will get back into his good groove soon.

  3. I wouldn't have been able to concentrate on anything either! And it's stress...although good is there, even so!

    1. Ha! I didn't think of 'good stress' but that is a good way of looking at it. I'm sure it was hard for him to think of anything else other than Mom being home.
