Attachment is not sufficiency.

When Elisha was approaching a year I had this exchange with Nate V while we were getting ready to leave the church.

Me: It is so awesome to watch Elisha develop an attachment to his daddy. He’ll be lunging and calling for Jay as soon as he walks in the door. It’s so nice for me now that Elisha finds Daddy desirable.

Nate (serious and smiling at the same time): But, then, desirability is not sufficiency. When he wants Mama, only Mama will do.

(He has a son 6-months older than mine.)
