Something about having kids just makes you miss your parents even more. I mean I've lived on a different continent than them for 12 years now (wow, has it been that long?!) and I can't say it ever really gets easier to be apart. You can kind of get used to it, but it's never easy. Since the boys have been born, though, I've missed them so much more. I'm so glad we'll get to spend this time together!!
