The News From Far Away. It is strange not to have any activities to write about this week. Smarty and her Papa are visiting the country that she can also claim as her own – Germany. She is a dual citizen, so it’s not out of realm of possibility that one day she might want to live there. We spoke several times on the phone, and they are having a really good time. Smarty has so many new experiences there – new language environment, new food, traveling by bus and train, visiting really old landmarks. It’s also great that she is able to connect to her German Opa (grandfather) and her German aunt and uncle.

Home Alone. I am a little jealous that only my husband gets to watch Smarty experience Europe for the first time, but I think it’s really good for both of them to be on their own. Our daughter is a lot more independent when she is with her papa, which probably doesn’t reflect well on my parenting Smile In the meantime, I am enjoying my alone time, catching up with some home and work projects and fixing up old posts on my blog. Time flies really fast, and I am looking forward to the next Saturday and to having my family back home with me.

This was a very busy week in our house! I am looking forward to a quieter week coming up, although I doubt it will truly be quiet.

What a wonderful and rich life you have given your daughter. She will grow up to be as special as you.

What a wonderful opportunity at a young age! Can't wait to hear of her adventures. I have friends who lived in Germany for several years and loved it.

I can understand why you'd be so very jealous. I would be too to see all of those new experiences, but it's also fun to be on your own. Enjoy your time alone (I know I did).

It is so nice that you can share so much with your daughter.
