Big Words From A 2-Year Old

Leila was sitting on Jason's lap this morning. She was pouting which is not unusual for her. He asked her what was wrong and if she was going to miss him when he is gone.

Her exact words?

"Yes. You don't love us."

He asked, "Why? Because I'm leaving?"

"Yes. You don't love me or Maffew or Dosua or Sawah or Nayfin or Rynin."

He gave her a big hug and told her that he's coming back soon. And that he loves her. And I don't think he could say anything else at that point.

I can assure you that I am not the only one crying today!

We are trying to make this as easy on the kids as possible. I'm using this picture of Jason to have dolls made for the kids so they can cuddle with Daddy even when he's gone.

If it's this hard to say good-bye just sending him off to school, what are we going to do when we're sending him off to Iraq next year?

I promise I will have something happier to write about next week...
