I got up long before the sun this morning to go out to my daughter's house and take my granddaughter to daycare. My daughter had an early morning flight for an out-of-town meeting and her husband, a teacher, had a meeting before school this morning.
I sat in the playroom outside her bedroom reading a book while I waited for her to wake up. She'll be 2 years old the middle of November and she sleeps in a toddler bed now.
As the sun started to dawn, I heard her talking and rustling around. I opened her door, peeked in and she exclaimed "Grandma!!" (oh my melting heart).
Then, as I picked her up, she said, "I want Grandpa." Crash.
