They’re gone

They’re gone. I put them in a taxi at 2:00 AM last night. It’s a sad day in the Boxenhorn house. I can say that with certainty, since I am now the only one in it. The reality struck home as I was saying goodbye to the kids.

This morning I woke up on my own, with no little heads in my armpits, no crick in the neck. Nobody who needed to get off to school, or to camp, or who wanted breakfast, or to play. It was awful.
