I had an early meeting this morning, and Jaclyn and I decided it would be best if we waited until after that to take Miles to daycare. It felt weird leaving first thing in the morning without Miles in tow, and it was a little more difficult getting out the door with his smiling face persistently beckoning me back for one more hug.
As I finally made my way out the bedroom door, I waved to Miles and said, “Bye! I’ll see you in a little while!” And Miles waved back! We just stared at each other, smiling and waving for about ten seconds before I had to tear myself away.
As I sat on the bench near the front door, putting on my shoes, Jaclyn called from the bedroom, “Oh my god, he’s still waving at you!” she laughed.
