Monday I had to go out of town for a business meeting. Kiddo had anxiety again, claimed not to, but it was obvious from her hyperness that she was feeling anxiety.
Tuesday morning I called and hubs said she didn't want to talk to me on the phone. Apparently she was worried about that because then she grabbed the phone to talk to me.
I came home Tuesday night and she was wound up and wired, but so happy to see me.
She pounced on me on the way in the door, knocking the pups out of the way and saying "She's my momma first, I get the first hug". She had me read to her and even had me and daddy both kiss her good night. She NEVER wants kisses.
She's been super affectionate and hubs asked her "Do you get it that we're yours forever?" I love how he phrases it we're hers instead of her ours so she's not a possession and she gets to rule that part of it.
She said yes. We'll see though. 2 days later and still a little wired and more on us than normal.
I'll take that over January's response though. Improvements!!!
On another note, I was asked twice this week if I was interested in a promotion. I turned it down. There is no way I can put myself in a position to spend more time away from home and create extra anxiety for our baby girl.
Still proud of her progress though. We'll make it. A week at a time, a day at a time, and some times a moment at a time.
She's a treasure and is so worth all the heartaches we've dealt with over the last few years.
