Separation Anxiety Girl

daisy_knotwise took Julie in for her belated three-year-old check up this morning. Everything's fine, although she's a little heavy for her height. On the other hand, there's a lot of muscle on that little girl for any height. We'll keep an eye on it.

Gretchen mentioned to the doctor that Julie had been being really clingy, to the extent of crying herself to sleep when she and I had gone off to see Green Lantern last week leaving her with the girl next door as a babysitter. The doctor said we should just let her continue crying, because it's a "phase" and she'll grow out of it.

So we went out to dinner tonight with marniegucciard and Bonnie. (samwinolj was supposed to come too, but he wasn't feeling well.) Julie proceeded to emote from the moment that Steph arrived until we left and thereafter. The report is that she would occasionally become distracted by whatever game she was playing and forget that she was supposed to be upset, but would eventually return to "Mommy and Daddy will be home soon."

She was quite happy to see us when we returned about 2.5 hours after we'd left, well-fed and happy with adult conversation. :)

We'll keep working on this.

  • Finally

    It is good that the weekend is here, because if I were any more tired, I would just fall over. It's not clear that things are going to slow down…

  • One (Or More) Thing(s) At a Time

    The trick around here is managing to multitask. The problem is a finite number of virtual machines to do it with. :)

  • Time to Sing

    K wandered by my office today and was commenting on time travel and time stop powers. So I asked her to bring up my guitar from downstairs and I sang…
