Before I had left for work, I had already captured my son- who was off doing his more important playing stuff- and told him the usual, “Mommy & Daddy love you forever and ever always,” before I left. I was gathering my coat and getting ready to leave when kiddo came strolling over with his hands outstretched. I leaned down and he gave me a big hug. It felt so special. I just stood and hugged him. Kiddo usually isn’t very snuggly towards me (I say he gets it from his father), so I REALLY enjoy the snuggles when I get them.
I opened the door and headed out into the darkness. Nathaniel closed the door behind me. It was so cute. He reminded me of my his father.
When I’d go to leave for work, I’d go and get a hug and kiss from John and he’d often say something like, “Go make some money,” usually followed with a smile because he was home for the evening and had a pleasant evening of watching TV, playing on the computer, and his much appreciated alone or “boy”and daddy time ahead of him.
