Just the two of us

October 4, 2012

Mae goes to daycare on Thursdays. She loves her caregiver – Mae’s known her for as long as she can remember. I honestly don’t think Mae would go if it was anyone else. Mae LOVES staying home. She’s a homebody like me. When Thursday rolls around Mae usually doesn’t want to go – but when I pick her up at the end of the day she insists she wants to start going EVERY DAY. Yeah, right – uh huh… I think it’s cute…

So – today, we walked home together and Mae noticed our long shadows. She asked why they seem to be longer now than in the summer. I tried to explain, but she sort of tuned me out — until I suggested we have some fun with our shadows and take a few photos for her blog. That’s me carrying her school bag — and if you look closely, you can see Mae is sporting ponytails pigtails (one of Mae’s fans clarified the difference for me – thanks!)… She must have told me a dozen times during our walk that she missed me – and that she loves me — and that I’m the best dad ever (does she have another dad I don’t know about? 🙂 )…

She never fails to make my day…
