They’re leaving home (bye bye)

My wife and daughter went on holiday without me recently. It’s a sign of how magnificent my good fortune is that saying goodbye to them was one of the toughest things I’ve had to deal with in a while, although I was thrilled they were off to have such a good time.

I’m beginning to have a better insight into how phenomenally difficult it must have been for my parents to send us away when we were young, and the week long trip was totally trivial in comparison.
