Off to Abu Dhabi

Kareem turned three months a couple of days ago and it's time for him, and me, to leave Lebanon and go back la 3end baba :) We're flying on Thursday to Abu Dhabi this time. Kareem is sad that he's leaving teta... I've never seen my mom so attached to anyone as much as she's attached to Kareem, and never seen her love someone as much as she loves him. To be honest, I regretted that I came here to give birth cause leaving now is much more difficult than anytime else. Everyone is asking her sho ra7 ta3mli hala2 now that Kareem is leaving, and she answers "3adi, Allah ysahel 3alehon". I know that it's not 3adi and that she will miss him so badly... but what can we do, ces't la vie.

Yes, this is life ...
but el7amdillah dayman 3ala kul shi.. you got to spend time with your mom and she got to enjoy you as a new mother and bond with grandchild for a couple of months and this tie will remain forever..
Inshallah in the future you'll get to visit back, in the meantime invest in a webcam and stay in touch with her, I bet she would love that..
You take care of yourself and have a safe trip "home".
:)

Thank you Noura, Nido and Sam. We're in Abu Dhabi now. My aunt and family who haven't visited Lebanon for 9 years are now staying with mom, this will keep her occupied for a while and help her adjust to our departure.
