It happened. After 252 days. Earlier this week she decided tonight’s the night! I awoke at 2:30am awaiting our middle of the night rendezvous that never happened. Then the next night she stood me up again.
A part of me will miss our quiet time in the still of the night. Our time. Waking up with her in the morning snuggled next to me. Seeing her little face when I open my eyes. Her soft breathing the first sound I hear. On to a new routine. The sleeping through the night routine.
The next morning she was quite proud of her accomplishment.
