We are writing you this letter to say that we hope that you hurry home. Mummy is very sad without you and we keep wondering where you are.
You are not at the top of the stairs when we climb there.
You don’t pop into the lounge for a cuddle and to throw us about the place.
You are not here to help with tea and we miss signing with you at breakfast.
Bath time is not so much fun with Mummy and it makes her sad that you are not here.
Bed time is harder for Mummy and we are struggling to settle, wondering if tomorrow will be the day when you are home.
We shout out your name in the middle of the night and we search for your face every morning.
Mummy is realising just how much you do to keep us all happy and healthy. She misses your cuddles and she feels so alone even though we give her lots of snuggles.
It is very lonely for her feeling alone in a house full of people. Please hurry home and make her happy again.
Mummy is very tired as she is trying to be Mummy and Daddy to us and a good Mummy for Matilda Bump too. She needs you to come home and just reassure her that you will always be with us and that everything is going to be okay.
We are finding it very strange having so many people in our house. It is hard to settle at night with all the noise and hard to settle in the day as there is never really any quiet time. Mummy misses your quiet times. Just sitting side by side in a warm and comfortable silence.
Mummy is going to complain much less in the future. She has realised just how wonderful you are and how incredibly lucky we all are to have you.
Mummy is feeling very lucky right now to have found someone in the world who always understands what we need, who knows us so well and loves us so much that you will do anything. You are the best Daddy and husband in the world.
We are all going to be fighting for your cuddles when you are home. We have been fighting for Mummy cuddles this week because they are lovely but mostly because we miss you so much we are not being our normal placid selves! I am sure Mummy will tell you more about that when you get home.
We know that you are doing exciting and wonderful things where you are and lots of people will be benefiting from your brilliance but we just want you home.
We love you, Daddy x
