after a cancelled flight, some seriously tense discussions with my wife and the fine folks at Delta Airlines, I managed to gey my wife and kids on a flight back home yesterday.
I got to the airport on time, parked the car, waited on all the lines so I could get security clearance to enter the airport and then sat there waiting for the plane to actually unload the passengers. The delta terminal has this glassed in area where the passengers come thru and I saw my daughter and then my son and I sat there smiling at them until they saw me. My daughter let out a scream that resulted in two cops running over. She jumped up into my arms and started kissing me and telling me minute of the flight. My son started jumping up and down shouting "dada" over and over and then he stopped and walked over to me. I knelt down so that we were face to face and his eyes turned quizzical and he looked at me and said, in a questioning tone "dada?" I said yes JB, and he smiled the biggest smile I have ever seen hugged me, kissed me and poked me in the eye.
The kids both passed out in the car so I didn't get much face time with them but my daughter crawled into my bed while I was showering this morning and I came out of the shower and was quietly getting dressed, so as to not wake my wife or my little girl and I heard a whispering voice say "daddy, I made room for you"
I had no choice but to climb back into bed and as I did she turned to face me and said "I love you daddy. I missed you every day except for today cause now you're here"

This post made me smile. Crakeur, we may have had our disagreements in the past but, man, you are lucky and sound like a very good father. I can't wait until the day I have children.

Her mom was watching from next door, and when our eyes met we both had big smiles on our faces.
The baby was totally giddy by this time, and so happy to see me.
It just goes to show you, the smallest things can bring the most happiness.
I really needed that today, and I think she knew it.

Where do you live? I guess it must be a small town. Must be nice. In the big city where I live, everyone is so uptight and assumes the worst out of every situation.
I know for fact that if that happen here where I live, the mother would of marched over and snatched the child like I manipulated the kid into the situation.
