A'salaamu alaikum ya'll.
Alex left today; I really don't feel like posting. Maybe in a few days. It was a great visit, I cried after he got on the plane to go back home.
Period. (In case all of the (.)s above didn't make my feelings plain enough)
I just turned to face the window and watch his plane take off. Then Aaminah was sad, of course, that her big brother had to go back home and kept asking why so I had to "man-up" and be happy for her.
It sucks being a twice-a-year parent. :-(
