I just got home from dropping mom at the airport. Long distance grandparenting is for the birds; and before I go any further, I must warn any readers that I'm in a total state of self-pity right now.
I've missed my parents since they've lived in Florida, but having Noah adds a whole new dimension of sadness when we have to leave each other. I've always wanted my children to grow up around my mom and dad, and it's a heart-breaking realization that it will probably not happen. Although this is cliche and whiny, life just doesn't seem fair sometimes. I miss my parents.
Anyone else deal with long distance parents/grandparents? How do you keep your kids close to them?
