I had a meeting get bumped up this evening, so I went straight from the office instead of going home, then heading back downtown. I got home at 820 and loved on the kids for a bit, a slow bedtime.
I told Titus I was sorry for not coming home before my meeting. He said it was okay…but something was off. I then asked if it hurt his feelings that I didn’t come home like we had discussed this morning. He looked me in the eye and said, ‘yes, if that’s okay.’ I reassured him that it was completely okay to feel his feelings, and that I was sorry…and then explained to him that I got to be home to put him to bed since I met early. He got it.
I told him that I miss him during the day, and his response was, ‘me, too.’
He is my best boy.
