Today mom went away for a long time. She’s gone away before, but those times it wasn’t for very long. Today I looked for her, but I didn’t see her. She left in the morning and gave me a kiss and told me to be good for daddy. Mom says she’s going to be gone more now because she’s going back to work. I like playing with daddy and Hannah and Max and Oliver, but I miss mom a little. She says she misses me too. Daddy and I sent mom a picture so she wouldn’t forget us.
