I Miss My Daddy

Yesterdy were outside waving to Daddy when he was leaving for his next trip starting tomorrow, and as soon as the car was out of sight that is when she said I miss my Daddy in the saddest tone I've ever heard "I miss my Daddy". Now she says this everytime he leaves, and most of the time it is usually within minutes of his leaving. And as I usually tell her I know she misses Daddy and he will be home very soon I looked over to where she was sitting and this is what I saw...

Then today as we were driving in the car listening to some music Daddy had recorded and this is the conversation we had:

"Mommy I miss my Daddy."

"I know you do but he will be home in a few days. "

"I know but Mommy I want him her now."

"Well you still have Mommy here, and were going to go shopping and have some fun right?" (trying to take her mind off missing Daddy)

"You are fun Mommy but I just want my Mommy and Daddy her together"

And then I looked back in the mirror because I could here sobbing and she had BIG crocodile tears going down her cheeks. We were stopping to eat and after we stopped I was still trying to make her feel better but she was just so sad - she almost made me cry! The song that was playing was "Baby Blue" by George Strait and Greg has been singing this to her when she goes to sleep so I don't know if hearing him singing it on the radio made her miss him more than usual - i just don't know...all I do know is she was one sad little girl for a while. : (
