Somebody misses her Daddy....

And I miss her Daddy too! Alyssa and I have been saying and kissing Daddy goodnight every night before bed. We talk about where Daddy is and what Daddy is doing. She knows Daddy is "work." She likes to read her book "Daddy and I" before bed and brings it to me pretty regularly, it's even winning over "Good night Moon" here lately. Today she ran across a rather unflattering picture of her dear Daddy (it's a picture from the beach last year, Daddy has his shirt off and a really big stupid looking straw hat, and sun glasses) today while we were cleaning up and it is now official property of The Rose. She crumpled it up and shoved it in the basket on her bike and took it with us around the neighborhood; she has kissed it so many times that there it is now encrusted in lots of drool, some snot (runny nose!), a little vanilla wafer, and I'm pretty sure that I don't want to know what else; she spent several minutes explaining to Desi and a rather uninterested Gwen (our fat lazy cat) that that was "Daddy" in the picture; and lastly insisted that Daddy go to bed with her, pig (her stuffed pig) and Bankie (her blanket) tonight. Of course I let her. She feel asleep with "Daddy" tucked securely under one arm and Pig under the other. Pretty soon we will all be together again though, and she's going to be super excited when that day comes! For now we will just be super proud of the very wonderful thing that that most wonderful man in our life is doing, and we will send him lots and lots of long distance hugs and kisses!
