Look Who's Home to Visit

We have a few things going on here...one is grandpa is sick.  Three and a half weeks in the hospital sick.  So yesterday morning at 4am, my second oldest son got on a plane from Florida to come visit.  We stopped by the hospital and had a great visit (Grandpa didn't know he was coming).

Then we headed to the elementary school on the way home to pick up little man.  Big brother JUST moved away at the end of summer, and little man has quite the attachment to him (and vice versa).  We didn't tell our little guy his brother was coming.  So...exhausted but eager to see his brother at the school, away we went.  It was def. a happy surprise.  He didn't notice who we had with us at first, but once he did, look at the instant and huge hug he wrapped on him, lol.  That'll wake a tired man up.  :)



Great to have him home!! He's only staying 7 days, but we're really glad he's here. Little man is really, really, realllly glad he's here.  The last thing he said before he went to sleep last night was, "You're still going to be here tomorrow when I get home from school, right?"  :)  Love, Love, LOVE it when my kids are together.  :)

That was cute! Did he not see him until the last second? What did he say after "Hey You?" That was so cute!

Yeah, he never even seen him until the last second. He said, "Hey, you came to visit?" He was over-the-top thrilled. :)

Hope you father feels better soon. Having those two's support, how could he not?

It's my hubby's dad, and thank you!

That was the sweetest thing I have seen all day. It's wonderful how much they love each other :)

Hope grandpa gets better.

I'm really lucky that my kids are so close considering their vast age differences! They're all like that though, it's really heart warming. :)

Kenya G. Johnson said...

Awww ;-)

mail4rosey said...

I agree, Khloé, one of the best things about children is how genuine they are (even if we sometimes wish they came with filters out in public ;) ).

Sweet. I bet little man could hardly concentrate at school the next day, too. Nice post.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks...I'm about to find out in a couple of hours when I pick him up. I bet he gets excited when the school day starts to come to an end.

Gina said...

I am a nurse and I will vouch that spending any length of time in a hospital is not fun! Hope your grandpa gets better soon. :)

The best feeling in the world is family.

Angelina Johnson said...

Awww that is precious! My 15 year old boy is like that with the youngest (also a boy) who is 10 ms old! Sweet family you have!

mail4rosey said...

I do too, it never ceases to amaze me (in a good way). :) Thanks for stopping by!

mail4rosey said...

My f-i-l is facing very challenging circumstances to say the least, and the nurses are so good about making him feel valued. I think that is just as important as most anything else because it helps keep his frame of mind positive.

You're right though, hospital stays are zero fun, and the lengthy ones like this one sure make you appreciate all of the little luxuries of home.

mail4rosey said...

Definitely. :)

mail4rosey said...

Sounds like you're lucky too. People always marvel at the age differences between my four, but they get along so famously. I hope that continues for the rest of their lives.

Donna Heber said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your father-in-law being ill. Despite the circumstances I hope everyone enjoys the visit and this quality time together. Sometimes we don't realize how special family is until it is too late.

I know, I wish he was staying longer.

mail4rosey said...

You always post thoughtful things, Liz. On everyone's blogs! So consistently that I noticed out of the bazillion bloggers that are writing. :)

Happy to have you visiting!

mail4rosey said...

Thank you. :)

mail4rosey said...

Now if I could get him to switch to a northern college instead of year-round warm sunny Florida... ;) Yeah, good luck w/that one...

mail4rosey said...

Thank you Donna, and you're spot on, sometimes we do overlook the really cool things that are right in front of us.

mail4rosey said...

Aw, I am sorry your FIL is in the hospital. Your son's visit will surely help him get better quicker.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks. A lot of people love him, he's always got visitors and between us and the nurses I wonder if the poor man gets any sleep.
