Oh, my beautiful, handsome, wonderful boys . . .
I know you had a traumatic 4 weeks, after mummy and daddy had a huge fight and mummy vanished. While the humans involved dealt with all the emotions, we couldn't explain it to you. I know you freaked out. It broke mummys heart when she thought she might never see you ever again, more than you can ever know. Much worse than you dying.
The reaction when mummy returned had everyone in tears as well. You should have been well asleep at 1am, not busting through the back door, knocking mummy flying, and yodelling your hearts out while dancing over her and smothering her in drool and kisses for 40 minutes.
You also wouldn't let mummy out of your sight for 2 days, which was fine in bed and the rest of the house. But it did provide a few problems when going to the loo or having a shower, but we got around it. (noses were shoved under the toilet door, and they took up station, one either side of the shower curtain, just in case I decided to escape down the drain).
You're still freaking out slightly every time I leave the house, but you're improving. And I'm making sure you get as many hugs and cuddles as you can stand, as often as you want them.
It has been a traumatic event for all concerned. And although you didn't grow, you seemed HUGE when I came back. Certainly heavier and more muscled.
It has been a long 4 weeks.......
