Baby love

I was heading out on an errand solo. Melissa had had enough of the car, and Matthew wanted to watch Kim Possible with her instead of coming. So I headed out, but paused to talk to Rachel from the door. Then Melissa came running after me. "Na na na na! Dada!" So I closed the door in a hurry and turned away, and sure enough Bang Bang Bang went the door, and I heard baby frustration on the other side.

Poor kid wanted Dad. I decided that if she thought she wanted to come, fine, even though she'd be ticked before we got far. So I opened the door, and Melissa reached for... the slice of homemade bread in my hand. Satisfied, she waved. "Ba bye!"

Babies are born to keep daddies humble.
