Two of ours are still very little, and the youngest is still a small baby, so won’t remember us anyway, but was sad at the thought of the 2 elder forgetting us - or not feeling so close to us - even a few months is a long time when you’re so little.
Then I remembered that we lived abroad for many years when dds were small, and that unless grandparents came to visit in winter, as both sets did once or twice, dds wouldn’t see their GPs from one summer to the next. And we had no internet or WhatsApp then, and until our last few months, not even a phone in the house.
In spite of that, dds were always so excited to see GPs waiting to meet us at Heathrow every summer, and loved spending time with both sets.
So I’m trying not to get too sad about it. The eventual cuddles will be all the better for waiting.
