busted

When Youngest came home from school today, I enveloped him in a big bear hug.

“I missed you today,” I whispered.

“I missed you too,” he replied.

I considered this for a beat.

“You did not.” 

A tiny silence.

“You’re right.”

“Awwww, why didn’t you miss me?”

“Mom, I was too busy learning.”

He’s learning, all right.
