Today, I went to a morning meeting and she usually couldn't care less, playing with the babysitter and barely saying "bye." But this morning she started to fuss and cry. I've read that you aren't supposed to make a big deal about departures so I smiled, said "bye bye, I'll be back soon" and hurried out the door. I could hear her fussing as I walked down the driveway to get in my car.
It will be interesting to see how she reacts tonight when I go to the airport. She'll be with her dad so chances are things will go smoothly. But what about tomorrow when she wakes up and it is the babysitter greeting her instead of me? What then?
Maybe I'm having just a wee bit of separation anxiety myself!
