We've entered month two of Violet crying when I take her to school. At least there hasn't been any more barfing. I've worried and worried that it was something about school, something happening there that she couldn't articulate, something dangerous. It's scary being a parent, worrying about what the big wide world has in store for your kids. That's why I was actually relieved when Violet started crying every morning when Greg left for work. That relief has pretty much worn off since she also cries when I leave to go to PTA meetings or for errands on the weekend. Or when she threw a fit about the babysitter coming for a rare date night.
Now whenever one of us leaves the house (and mostly it's Greg leaving for work in the morning) Violet requires a hug, a kiss, a fist bump and a high five. And then you have to be called back after the door closes for an additional hug and kiss. Hence today's title, provided by Greg.
