Because I had a meeting. I swept some snow off the front steps. I had coffee. I worked on a paper.
But Bubba? He learned to walk.
And I missed it. I went to pick him up at daycare and there he was, toddling around the room like a pro.
I'm so happy for him I could burst. I'm so sad for me that I could cry. I missed it!
He fell asleep in my arms tonight and I saw that I've been fooling myself that this will not be my privilege every night forever and ever amen. I want a big *pause* button.
I missed it. Wah.
