Today Alex comes home from the cottage and Monday, everyone goes back to work/therapy/camp. It's been nice to have a break but I'm ready to have both boys home again.
Usually the week after the cottage is a very difficult one. Alex is used to running things on his own agenda and being in a low-demand environment. This year my parents have said they'll try and keep up the demands and interrupt Alex's agenda. Hopefully that will mean fewer tantrums and holes in my wall this year.
I will miss not having to carry keys around all the time and it's been nice to have the upstairs open for airflow. But those are little things and I miss Alex's smile more.
