Sometimes The Hunni sings this to me.
So much of the song rings true–the line “I hate to wake you up to say goodbye”
“The taxi is waiting he’s blowing his horn.”
“I’m leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll be back again.
(There is one or two lines that don’t apply, but the sentiment of the song fits this pilot family.) Hit play as you read along.
Usually, The Hunni just gets a taxi from our home and heads out from here. He calls the same cabbie and he is getting to know all the kiddos. The only problem is that the cabbie thinks that our baby Little Man is a girl due to the fact that we haven’t yet cut his hair.
This time we dropped The Daddi off at the airport so we could spend a little more time together. Here is Eloise running in circles.
And this is the beginning of the goodbyes.
Daddi: “Are you going to give Daddi a kiss?” Eloise: (giggle, giggle) “Nope!”
Daddi: “Then I will have to steal one.” Eloise: (giggle, giggle)
Eloise: “How many times are you going to be gone?” Translated: “How long are you going to be gone?”
The following photo ranks as one of my favorites! I think it captures the Daddi’s love, and the Little Man’s tolerance.
So from this pilot’s wife to you, “Enjoy your Hunni tonight!!!”
