I was at blogworld in Las Vegas. I've been away from my wife and kids since Tuesday. I'm ready for us all to be home.
When you travel away from your kids, do you bring them gifts?
I don't have my own children yet (unless you count the dog), but when I was a kid, my dad travelled a lot, and he always brought me back Legos... specifically Robin Hood Legos... In those days the toys didn't already come built, they came with a pattern, and we would build them together... and THAT is what made them such great gifts.
Actually, a few years ago, I was telling my dad how much that meant to me as a child, and he divulged that he once almost missed a plane because he stopped at a toy store on the way to the airport... That's love.
I have never been away from my wife or kids for over 24 hours, but i am sure that if i was i would either mail a gift to them or bring home a gift for them.
it shows that you were thinking of them even though you were apart. hope you had a great time Paul and I am sure Robin and your children will be over the moon to see you on your return home.....jimmy
Wow Jimmy. That's pretty incredible. I love having the entire family together, but sometimes it's nice to get away with my wife for a day or two.
Maddie, that's a good story. I usually get something small for the girls. This time, I picked them up little wood gliders from a conference and other trinkets. They were so happy to get the little stuff, but totally confused at the same time what a few of the items were. It was pretty funny to watch their faces.
My husband is the lone traveler for business.
Otherwise as a family we stick close together and travel is a family ride.
However... when my husband returns he also brings cool stuff from the conference. The kids seem to like the pens, calculators, and tote bags better than the tee shirts he brings home which end up in my drawer.
So little things have value too.
And Maddie that is a good story.
Gift giving traditions create great collections and memories.
I'll have to tell the hubbie.
