My eye was glued to the TV that I didn't even notice that KT was looking at me intently.
At first, she was smiling, so happy to see her Mommy. But as I continue to ignore her, her smiles turned to a frown. And when that still did not get the attention she's looking for, she started bawling loudly.
That definitely got my attention. I had to kiss and hug her and talk to her for a while before she feels safe enough to stop crying.
Lesson learned: don't watch TV. Ha ha.
