Thinking I was being funny, I wrote “I love you” on a note and stuck it on my daughter while she was watching TV, just before I had to leave the go somewhere with my sister and brother-in-law. She giggled as I left our office.
When I left the house, she ran after me with with her arms outstretched to give me a hug before I left. I was only going down the street for a few minutes, so my brother-in-law said “wow, I guess she can’t bear for you to go away!” and I explained that I had just given her an “I love you” note and that she’s really affectionate.
I ended up being gone for about a half hour, talking to my sister in her front yard as we waved to her neighbors who were out and about for the afternoon. Just before I left I realized why M had wanted to run after me. For the last half hour I’d been wearing a post-it note on my back that said “I love you!”Posted by James at August 8, 2006 3:38 PM
