Missing Daddy

The month that Daddy was in Alaska and the rest of us were in Utah was a LONG month.  It was really hard on Mom, which was to be expected.  It was also hard on Daddy - the novelty of peace and quite wore off quickly and soon he was in a big empty (as in REALLY empty) house all by himself.  He didn't even have TV which was probably just mean.  Hardest on anyone though was Leisl - who had major Daddy withdrawals.
Pretty much every day at some point she would break out in a sobbing fit and cry, "Daddy, My Daddy!" over and over.  It was so pitiful and there really was nothing I could do to console her until we facetimed with Daddy and she could see his face and hear his voice.
She was always asking to talk to him or see him.

This little Daddy's girl will be much happier when she's back in Daddy's arms again.  (and so will mom).
