Missing sister
Well, my eldest daughter has been gone since Sunday. She is off in Utah visiting my cousins (who are closer to her age) with her grandma. We, of course, miss her, but it seems to have been bothering my son the most. He has been acting out every day and is just generally being difficult.

Sliding headfirst down the stairs this morning he looked at me and said:
Mom, it's so tough without Mouse. It just isn't the same.

Poor guy. Now if he could only show his affection for her in ways other than hiding her toys, taking the bookmarks out of her books and being a bit of a nuisance.
