Who else will play endless games of Uno and Old Maid?

Who else whips open their suitcase and hands out special little gifts for everyone?

Who else gently corrects interrupting and other bad manners?

And who else do you feel like you can comfortably leave your girls with while you run some errands, instead of hauling around grumpy children?

And of course, while the girls nap, Mama has someone to visit with for two hours. That’s slightly more fun than my regular dishwashing and vacuuming during nap time.

On Sunday night when her flight departed, I’m not sure who was sadder.
