When Daddy's Away
Chris is in Singapore this week, so it is just me and G. Some highlights from our day.
- Kiddo wakes up at 6:05 am (yikes!) so I bring her and her menagerie of stuffed animals back into bed with me. After finishing her milk, she snuggles up to me, places her hand on my cheek and her nose by my nose. "I love momma," she says.
- After dropping Miss G off at school, I ran into one of her classmate's moms. "Oh, are you *Jill*'s mom?", she asks in Chinese. Jill being a pseudonym for the only little white girl in the class. "Nope, I'm Gioia's momma." Blink. Blink. I wonder how long it will take her to figure that one out.
- Daddy called while G was taking a bath. She had a full on conversation with him while standing in the tub, complete with kissy sounds. For a second, I thought she was a six year old disguised as a toddler. Right up until the point where Chris asked - "Where's Daddy," and she immediately stared intently into the phone (trying to find him inside). Perhaps Georgia Tech can wait another year after all.
