Mom's Going Where? Not So Fast.
A few months ago I was preparing to leave for a long weekend girl's trip. We sat the children down to make them aware that I would be gone. We explained things might seem a little different, but we assured them Dad would be there to take care of everything.
They looked a little sullen at the news and so to cheer them up, DH shouted, "Four days of fast food! Yeah!"
Immediately D2 was even more visibly distraught. "Don't worry, sweetheart," I consoled, "Mommy isn't going to be gone too long. And you'll have fun with Dad while I'm gone."
"But," she worried with tears forming in her green eyes, "I don't think I can fast without food for four days."
