I saw some tears from Benjamin.
I went in to check on them (Benjamin and Josiah) after they went to bed and stopped to ask them “Do you feel bad when you make Mommy cry?”
So I told them . . “You aren’t making Mommy cry. It’s not your fault. Mommy just misses Daddy”
Josiah said “Dassy says that Mommy never cries.” Slight error since I think it was really Abigail who said that, and huge error in that “never” is SO untrue. “Mommy cries a lot, Josiah. And it’s o.k. to cry. In fact it’s good to cry.”
Benjamin perked up and with big ole tears in his eyes he said “I just want to hug Daddy.”
Oh my poor heart!
“I just want to hug Daddy, too, Benjamin.”
