There is a game that the kids love to play. Well, it's not really a game, per say. What it really is, pretend play. The love pretending to leave. It is the funniest thing ever. Ok, so maybe it isn't so funny to all of you but to me, I crack up every time.
For real, they get totally in to it. Seriously in to it. First, they gather all their belongings. Everything they can grab in to their little hands. It is soooo cute. Any bucket, bag or otherwise mentionable that can be carried from the shoulder or arm is grabbed.
Then it is time for goodbye hugs & kisses. So adorable! If they miss someone, they go back around & kiss/hug them.
Finally, they say "bye-bye". In Gabi's case, she says "Bye-bye! See ya soon!" or "Bye-bye! I wub you. See ya soon!"
All of it makes my heart melt. Every single moment.
