Me : "Zara, where is Daddy?" Zara : "There" (pointed outside) Me : "Daddy go where?" Zara : "Work Work" Me : "Daddy sit what to go work work?" Zara : "Uh-pen" (Airoplane) Daddy has been away for more than 2 weeks now. Does Zara miss him? Or Does Zara know how to miss him? She doesn't cry for him, but there are signs which shows there's a hint of longing for the man who reads her bed time stories, who gives her horsey rides. She woke up at home, and pointed outside (where Daddy had been quarantined for a week because he had a very bad flu just before he left) and said, "Daddy" then looked at me and waited for an answer. She picked up the phone and started talking to the mouth piece, "Daddy, mm-hhh, mm-hhh" (the mm-hhh, mm-hhh sounded sad, a sound she pretended to make when we asked her to show us how she cried). She reached her hand out to an imaginary image, and said, "Daddy, Keh-Yee"; "Daddy, Keh-Yee" (Daddy, Carry). Daddy will be home tomorrow, I would like to see if Zara will squeal in delight to see him. As for me, I will, thinking of those goodies he's bringing back for me. And btw, if you are reading this, Happy Birthday, Dear. The lotus plant bloomed while you were away.
