Gabriel is in Florida.
He's been with his dad since last Saturday morning, but they just got on an airplane and flew across the country last night.
He'll come home on Sunday.
This is the longest he has ever been gone.
A week and a day.
I'm sure this won't be the longest that he'll ever be gone.
But today. Today it is the longest he's been gone.
Gabriel has flown across the country with his father once before. He was 15 months old and he'd never been away from me for longer than 6 hours and I sent him to New York City for four days to meet his grandparents.
It's not that he's never been away.
But, I miss him.
