It's not always (or ever) easy to leave Chase. Particularly if he's upset, asking for me and/or clinging to me. Luckily he doesn't do that very much anymore (sniff, sniff). Which is a good thing. However, if there is a morning when I drop him off at Leslie's where he's particularly clingy, we encourage him to go to the window and wave to me. It always works like a charm. And (ignore the annoying glare) but look at this sweet sight:
It is absolutely the cutest thing to see Chase and Samantha's big grins in the kitchen window as I'm driving away in the mornings.
It makes going to work a little more bearable.
Knowing how happy he is makes leaving that much easier.
