Because I defiled my blog with a photo of Dr. Laura, I thought I'd freshen things up by telling a nice story.
When Jay leaves for work every morning, WCK likes to run to the dining room window and wave to him as he drives off.
"Goodbye, Daddy!" she always yells. "WE LOVE YOU!!"
This morning, she was waving, as usual, but Jay was preoccupied with an enormous school bus zooming down our street, and he didn't wave back. WCK was so involved with her own waving and yelling that she didn't seem to mind. After he drove away, we went into the living room to play for a few minutes before preschool. We were finishing up a Pooh Bear puzzle when the doorbell rang.
It was Jay. He drove all the way back home and came to the door in the pouring rain, because he realized he forgot to wave to WCK.
So he got back into his car and re-enacted leaving for work, and this time he waved.
"Goodbye, Daddy!" yelled WCK. "WE LOVE YOU!!" (Thoughtful pause) "AGAIN!!!"
