When I was newly back to work I ran to the Target down the street on my lunch break to pick-up some essentials for Baby V. Thankfully it’s close enough to my office that I can make a quick run midday rather than having to stop on my commute home further delaying precious cuddle time my little guy. While snatching up some essentials (if you don’t have the Target Mobile Coupons – get ‘em!), I heard a woman chatting but didn’t hear anyone responding. I peeked around the corner to see a chubby little half asleep babe snuggled in her bucket seat. Her mom lazily strolling the aisles and chatting with her as she looked through a clearance rack of clothes. I literally had to fight back tears. Here I was running through the store snatching up a few items before getting back to the office to begin the second half of my workday and these ladies were having a leisurely shopping trip together. I really missed V in that moment. Some days being away is easier than others.
