“Have a good day. I’ll see you this afternoon.” Milo begins to cry and clings to his father’s leg. Jon gets annoyed. “Milo, don’t be silly. Go and play with your friends.” Milo cries louder and clings on. Jon extracts Milo from his leg and holds Milo away from him saying, “Milo, big boys don’t cry. Stop being so silly. You know daddy has to go to work and I am already late!” Jon looks around for an educator, “Here’s Jenny, she’ll look after you.” Jon makes a rapid exit with Milo continuing to cry. When Jon returns in the evening to collect Milo he comments to the educator, “Milo was a real sook this morning, weren’t you Milo.’”
