06:59 am: an unexpected change
I used to go into the office at least 2-3 times a week. Teddy would give me a hug and a kiss, tell me he loved me and missed me, and show me his bellybutton as I left the house.

I went to the office by myself yesterday for only the second time since we moved (other times, Teddy and Peter have come with me and stayed with Grandma & Grandpa). Teddy gave me a hug and a kiss, told me he loved me and missed me, showed me his bellybutton as I backed down the driveway, and cried the whole time.

Oh man.

He did fine with Peter, although he asked where I was several times. When I called, he stayed on the phone much longer than normal. And when I finally got home, he basically fell apart.

I hadn't expected any of this. I should have, but I didn't. We're all so used to having me home that my absence is much harder than it used to be.

(I don't think Peter would admit to it, but he had a tough time too. Last night, he was crabbier than I've seen him in weeks.)
