And All Is Now Right In our World...

Around 1 am this morning, a very tired and weary traveler made his way back home to Chennai. He was exhausted from the two flights totaling around 19 hours flying time... or 24 hours if you include the early arrival time to the airport and layover in Frankfurt. With a brief night's sleep he was happily awoken by his kidlets at the earliest possible crack of dawn... also known as 5:45 am... (though I did send them back to bed until 7 am and caved at 6:35 am when they just refused to stay in their beds as excitement of seeing daddy completely took over and negated sleep).

I don't know how he did it, but sweet daddy-o made it through the entire day without so much as a break or a nap ... well, he did manage to fall asleep for a brief minute or three on the side of the pool this afternoon, but we won't really count that one, m'kay? Nor will we hassle him that I was the one stuck changing the blow out diaper AND the dog vomit that both happened the only two times he was in a different room than us today. Figures. Bygones.

Here's a few shots of Matt being accosted by the kiddies before bed. Can you tell they missed him?

Nineteen days.

Our world is never, ever complete without Daddy. When he's not around, it's just... lonely. I'm so glad he's home. And your family is so beautiful. ADORABLE pictures!

So happy for you guys!

It's always great when they arrive home from work trips. Hubby used to do a lot of them years ago - now, just occasionally. But when he gets back, the kids (and the dog) go WILD!

Glad yours is home safely. x

I love the pictures! Your kids are just so cute.
There is nothing better than having dad home.
Actually, I think having the support of a husband is better.
I am glad you are all together.

Why and how does the dog vomit? Huh? What do you feed him? Idli Sambhar?

I SO know the feeling. It's like finally you can breathe again. I know our girls won't let Daddy out of their sight for a minute when he gets back from a trip like that. Enjoy the homecoming.
