What Separation Anxiety?

Today Paul left Ellie alone at school for the first time. We rarely leave her with anyone else, and and when we do she always cries. Lots. So Paul stuck around, and stuck around, and was really really late for work by the time he finally stood up to go.

He said, "Bye bye, Ellie."

Ellie looked up from where she was busily playing with her teacher. "Buh buh, Dada."

And that was that.

Oh my, I am such a goofy, pregnant hormonal woman because all *I* could think was "oh, she's a big girl now!" *sniff*

Oh, that's rich. I can just picture her: Yeah, uh-huh, BUH-byee now. Playing here. BUH-byee.
I'm glad it went well. And you? How's work???

They're not allowed to grow up! They're just not!

Unless they're being annoying. Then they can grow up and go the hell away.

I'm glad it's going well, Sarahlynn. :)
