Welcome to my now regular conversation with my near 3 year old. I think it is finally sinkin' in that Mama now works from home and my Add... well she likes it.
Car in driveway = Mama at home to Miss Add . I do believe the child walks by me 20 times a day to check to see if my car is in the driveway... just to be sure I am not an imaginary friend, I suppose.
Speakin' of "I suppose", that is Miss Add's new phrase. Now Aunt Lou and Auntie Leann would say that is because Miss Add is my "mini-me" and has now picked up on mama's special style of talkin', but I don't know. I suppose that truth be told that might be it ;)
Anyhoo, back to Miss Add's car count... this new obsession over Mommy's car also means that when Mama does have to leave for an appointment or meeting with a client, there is a heightened form of the "Mommy don't go" conversation... you know the one... the one where your heart sinks into your shoes...
I have found that in these situations Miss Add calms down when we talk about our plans for when I return. It gives us something to look forward to and she knows Mama's car will soon be back in the driveway.
Today was no different. I had a meeting with a couple of clients and was headed out the door when that adorable child gave me those puppy dog eyes.
"You can't go to work Mommy," she said with tears welling up.
I then asked her if we could play in her sprinkler when I got home and all of a sudden joy filled those eyes and before long she was rushing me out the door...
So when I got home, we gots to playin' and THIS is the face I got:
