As I’ve written about previously, Miles has a complicated relationship with his regular babysitter, Lisa. As we’ve moved farther and farther into coronavirus isolation, Miles has had to start contending with these feelings in more visible ways. It seems he’s being a bit more honest with himself (and us) now about the degree to which he misses her, and while their contact has largely been limited to Facetime conversations with mixed results, Miles has received some correspondence by mail (which he loves).
We were even able to arrange a quick, socially distanced meetup so Miles could see Lisa (and vice versa!). Oh, the doggy certainly sweetened the pot too.
