we've been looking forward to my mom and dad's arrival for quite some time now. the boys get more excited than for christmas and the anticipation is palpable in our home.
friday night (two nights before the big day) ari came into our room at 3:30 a.m. shouting "ONE MORE NA-NIGHT 'TIL OMA COMES!!" cute now, but not so much before dawn. he actually stayed up and played quietly until we all crawled out of bed hours later. when i asked him about why he didn't sleep he said he was so excited about oma coming. i asked...."well, couldn't you have gone back to sleep and dreamed about oma?" ari quickly replied....no. a dream is a mixture of all the things you were thinking about that day and they come out in a confusing dream. i was thinking of just one thing. oma.
