Petra. Petra. Oh, Petra.
I know that you are over in Germany having a grand ‘ol time right now but there are a bunch of people back here in Western Maryland that miss you and wanted to say “hello”
It really is strange not having you around to call and whine to…or to snort on the baby and tickle his ribs…or to share a pot of coffee with. These have been the longest 12 days in a long long time.
Someone wanted to send you a message…
Pretty good penmanship for a 16-month old, right?
Oh! Wait…Monika is here…she wanted me to pass this along as well…
and I mean really….can anyone look more pathetic than this? You can’t see them because, well, I cry invisible tears…but trust me *sob*
Connor used this opportunity to practice his German…admit it, he is better looking than any kid in Germany, right?
Uh….and Mark. Mark misses you too. He knows he is hard to give up for 19 days…but he is proud of your bravery. hahaha.
We hope that you are having a great time. In all seriousness though, we super-duper cannot wait to see you again. See you very soon!
(* I hope that the title says “I miss you” but I fear it probably says something like “I want to marry a chicken” instead)
