The payback to all of this, however, is the greeting I get when I return at the end of the day. Whether he is across the room or sitting at the table eating a snack, when he sees me he gets the most heartwarming, biggest smile on his face and barrels across the room into my arms. Often times he is also giggling uncontrollably. This makes even the worst of my days seem so insignificant.
