After saying last night each night I make it home in time to play with CJ, tonight I was late.

I got away late, so late I just assumed I’d missed him.

He’d be cuddled up in bed by the time I got home…

But when my headlights came down the street, this is what greeted me.

My heart rose. Based on the look on his face so did his.

I have no idea how long he had been standing there, but he was so excited.

He was on good form, so despite it being late still managed to get big cuddles, shower time and even a bedtime book.
