“Did you miss me as much as I missed you Babygirl?” He
mumbled and you nodded as he hoisted you up into his arms and grabbed at his
“We missed you.” You corrected and he chuckled when your cat shot out of the bedroom and wound around his legs.
“Hey little princess I missed you to.” He chuckled and
crouched so you could help her climb onto his shoulder. “Not that I don’t love
my girls but I’m pretty tired.”
