As you, observant reader, may have gathered over the course of this week, my husband and I were in Mexico. With amazing friends. And it was a dream-come-true kind of vacation.
However, with a family wedding to attend in Jacksonville, Florida, this weekend, we were forced to leave Cabo just a bit early and we said our goodbyes this morning. We were having such a good time and we live so far away from our friends in real life (they live in SoCal, we in NoCenWis… that’s north central Wisconsin for those of you not in “the know”), so saying goodbye is always really hard. Especially saying goodbye to those kiddos! They give great hugs, but those little cartoon character eyes and the pleas to not go will really break your heart.
This week, Christian, who is 6, found that my husband has some really awesome games on his iPad (something about monkeys and balloons (?) was a big hit, apparently) so I jokingly asked Christian as he was saying goodbye what he was going to miss more—Seth (that’s my husband, big name reveal! Saying “my husband” is becoming somewhat tedious…) or his iPad.
To which Christian responded, “Seth! Because in our family, we value people more than things!”
It was such a heartfelt and obviously true sentiment. From a techno-philic, Apple (like the brand not the fruit)-loving, 6-year-old. Dang. Color me impressed.
Wise words from little Christian…
Happy Friday! Enjoy some people this weekend! (And some things too… because why not? Just remember what Christian said and try to put the people first!)
