October 11. The day we left the hospital to finally come home.
It was a beautiful sunny day, with the autumn settling in, but summer refusing to let the sun go.
By 10 am we were ready to go. We said good bye to all our favourite nurses, to our room, the hospital and, most importantly, to the button above the bed.
It was time to move on and start a new chapter of our life together as a family.
When we arrived home, we were greeted by our Super Nonna, all in tears of emotions (Super Nonnas don’t cry), beautiful flowers and the most delicious smell of stuffed pepperoni, which has penetrated every corner of the house and really made us all feel HOME! Thank you Super Nonna for making it so easy and so beautiful!
For those of you who don’t have a Super Nonna, I’d recommend finding one. It could either be a member of a family or some trained professional. We were lucky enough to have our own authentic one, Guido’s mother – the love and care she has for the little ones can only be compared to the love for her own 2 sons.
