It’s really weird not having her around the house. Daddy’s tried to explain to me what’s happened, and I understand kind of. After all if my mommy were in trouble I would help her as much as I could!
Daddy seems to be keeping things running in the house – watching him I can see how much she does for us all the time! But I can see he misses her almost as much as I do. Every night I try to convince him it would be better to sleep in the guest room with me, and I’m surprised – usually he says no, but ever since she went on her trip, he’s been saying yes a lot too. I think he feels that being in a room all by himself seems strange.
He also keeps giving me hugs and kisses, and whispering in my ear “don’t worry, she’ll be home soon”. I know that, but I think he likes to remind himself too.
Today he asked me to try something. He says I always have too much energy, and it would be nice if I could send some to her. So I’m going to squeeze my eyes shut while sleeping, and see if I can spend as much time as I can thinking about her. Maybe some of those good thoughts will get over there for my mommy and help her, like she’s helping her mommy.
