Steve and I used to joke when Cooper was little that we had "that kid" at church. The one who would always cry and never want me to leave him. I can't tell you how many times our number would come up on the screen. There were mornings he would be clinging on to me not wanting me to leave. Finally, the consistency paid off. He is a complete angel now. Walks right on in his room, doesn't cry, has a great time, loves going to church. I was talking to one of his teacher's this week and she was telling me he is one of the better ones. This makes me smile inside.
Now it's Cameron's turn. I have yet to have my number called but he does seem to give them fits. His separation issues have hit much earlier than Cooper's. Could be because I went back to work a few months with Cooper. Most mornings he takes a short nap and then cries on and off until we come get him. Except this morning! I took him back before service started and we kept Cooper with us so he could sing a few songs. As I was taking Cooper back I stopped by Cameron's room and they told me he was asleep in the swing. This is what I found after service when I went to get him. I finally have "that other kid". The easy one! The one who sleeps and you forget who is even there. Maybe they won't cringe when they see us coming now on.
