"MOMMY COME GET ME!!!"&nbsp; This morning I inform her that her beloved mommy has already left for work.</P> <P>Well, the scathing&nbsp;look she gave me could have dissolved even a fish into tears(or whatever else).</P> <P>She then goes to the TV room to make a final search, but mommy isn't there.</P> <P>So with a&nbsp;expression of absolute humilty&nbsp; on her face she returns to me and puts her arms around me.</P> <P>I guess any port in a storm. She is now sitting on my lap while I blog. For the moment I am her best friend ..until mommy returns.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P>

    Aww, poor sweet child. I think she is getting much love from her Grandmother to help make up for her mom not being able to be there. Happy, healthy new year to you and yours. Love, Shar

    She is too cute and boy can I relate to this from all my nices and nephews and my kids too. Sometimes you have to take what you can get from them, but they make it worth it. Michael

    This is just precious. My daughter is sixteen months old, and her name is Brianna. She sits in my lap continuously, even when I am typing. She is mommies girl and wants to always be right where I am. I am sure you enjoy being the port in the storm. Much love and hugs to you both. Christie
