I'm Not Easy

Every morning, Daddy leaves. And about four naps later, he returns. This happens five days in a row, and then for two days, I get my claws into him for an entire day.

That's just how it goes. I don't agree with it, but them's the breaks.

Anyway, when he comes home late at night, he's so happy to see Mommy and me. Mommy's face instantly lights up and she gives him a hug and a kiss.

But me? It takes a while.

It's not that I don't love Daddy. I do. But I like to hold back for a couple of seconds before I react. Why? Well, I just want him to think that I'm accepting him with my love, that I'm actually deliberating it. If I just smiled immediately, then he'll think I'd do that for anyone.

And Daddy isn't just anyone.
