On Sunday night, we stepped off the plane onto the soil of Columbus, Ohio for our first visit with the kids. Sunday was supposed to be our moving day, but when the sale of our house fell through, we pushed the move back a few weeks. As the tickets were non-refundable, we decided to still use them to give the kids a taste of their new city.
Their comments and questions have been wonderful, revealing all their fears and expectations.
Juliette, scowling as we walked through the airport, said, “This not O-Hio. Where my new big girl bed? Not here.”
Bella from the back seat of the mini-van after I turned on the radio, “Oh great! I can’t believe they have New Jersey music here!”
Jack, looking at the map on the TV during the local news weather forecast, “Look mom! Ohio is part of the United States! It’s part of New Jersey!”
And all kids were unanimous when we pulled up for our first Ohio dinner: “This is the fanciest McDonald’s we’ve ever seen. Ohio is great!”
