Rio has recently developed this cute/annoying habit of saying good-bye FOREVER when either of her parents leaves the house without her. She waves, she hugs, she kisses, she cries, she says cute little poems and rituals. She needs to follow us out into the street to continue waving and shouting after us, “Good-bye! I love you! I’ll see you tomorrow! I love you! Good-bye! You’re going now! I’ll see you soon! Caio!”

This is, as I said, charming, but also exhausting.
