Too quickly, they were here and then gone again.
My niece Kerigan came over for a few hours on Friday.
We made cupcakes and two girls giggled more than they talked. And a young boy looked at me every time and quietly rolled his twinkly eyes with a little grin. A ‘stop it, I love it’ kind of grin. If you know Connor, you know what I mean.
At the end of the night, my sister and her family started their trip back to Illinois, and Nora sat on the couch next to me.
“I know it’s stupid, and I know I’m overly-emotional, but… -(insert sob here)- I miss Carter and Kerigan already! And they just left!”
Same here, Nora.
Come again soon, k?
