My husband was only gone 3 weeks on his most recent underway, but he got home right as I was leaving to go pick my daughter up from kindergarten, and she didn't know that he was home. We walk to and fro, so he stood at the end of the driveway waiting for us. We were about 2 houses up the street when my 5 year old noticed him, started laughing, and took off running to give him a hug. My 17 month old was doddling like she typically does, but looked up to see why big sister was excited, saw my DH and SCREAMED and took off wobble-running down the sidewalk yelling "Dada! Dada!" the whole way and jumped into his arms. I wish I had had it on video, it was too cute. Neither one of them usually get that excited about homecomings, other than giving a hug and "hi daddy!" The baby was glued to his side the rest of the day and followed him everywhere he went.
Do your kids get super excited for homecomings?
