It did take 2 years, but it has happened. Disha and I were the inseparable two. Now I spend 11 hours away from home and my daughter. The transition is on going- bitter sweet experience. And its for everybody- Disha, Karthik, my in-laws and me.
Disha now gets so much time with her grand parents. They tell her the different colors, talk to her about alphabets, numbers and so on. Something we have refrained from doing as her parents. Does it matter? Disha enjoys her time with them. She does miss me, as the day wears on. But I end up thinking or worrying about her so much more.
Being apart is tough. On the other hand, it opens up so many opportunities for both of us. Getting back together, now feels special. Our evening time together has a new meaning now.
