“Just come home, Dad. [not Daddy!] The cwock says 20:30. Come home now fwom yo twip. Okay good, see you soon, bye.” [Click]
(2013, 4.5 years old)

I was in Mississippi on the last day of a short work-caytion. I talked to the little lad multiple times each day, but he was still super daddysick. HE CALLED ME DAD! What!?! I almost asked him not to call me that, but it told the story of how badly he’d been missing me, and I knew I’d be Daddy again, once I got home.

Even on the morning I headed out to leave for my trip, he met me at the top of the stairs and I captured this short video of him (below). He’s really quiet, but he’s basically saying he’s going to take away my car so I can’t go.

It almost stopped me, too. It was so adorable, it nearly melted my shoes to the ground.

    bless him! It isn’t easy. My husband has to go away a lot (military) and it just breaks me when my daughter cries for him and asks and asks when he will be home!!

    It’s rough being little, thankfully it doesn’t last long. But then again… O_o
