Two Wild And Crazy Guys

To my son Tommy,

Your mother has headed off to upstate New York for the weekend.  She drove up with her best friend whom you call Aunt Mo (or perhaps Aunt Moe-ee but not sure how to spell that) for Mo's baby shower.  So we have the house, and the town to ourselves.  Just a couple of wild and crazy guys.

Being sans mommy can be fun but you are a little young to appreciate "just the guys" time.  So far we have ate dinner, silly danced to a song from the Jungle book, played tag, did puzzles, had a hug'o'war, headed over to your Uncle Chris and Aunt Karen's place for pool and pizza, lost two red Elmo slippers, did some kids karaoke that sounded like Slayer singing Twinkle Twinkle, found two red Elmo slippers, hit McD's and now are watching Willy Wonka while chomping on some fries and sitting around in our under-roos.  OK they really aren't under-roos just boxer briefs.  Not to mention we have broken the early to bed rule recently set out by your mom, but I won't tell her if you won't.  I expect to fall asleep together on the couch tonight and can't wait to see what type of trouble we can get into tomorrow.

Yeah, a couple days without Mommy can seem fun and exciting... but deep down we both miss her dearly.  You have asked for her about a dozen times already.  I probably give you too straight of an answer when you ask where she is.  I should give you more of a consoling answer, but you seem to be handling the situation OK considering you probably have been away from your mom for less than 13 hours 37 minutes and 11 seconds.  Of course that is an exaggeration, but you have spent the majority of your waking hours with your mom.  And that is a good thing because you got a great mom and after only 2 days left to our own devices we will be begging for her return.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
