abbey:  mommy, tomorrow can we visit my friends

me: which friends would that be?  we could call Miss. Julie and see if Lee and Grace can play.  Do you remember them?

abbey:  I want to visit my friends in Argentina. 

me:  abbey, we just left argentina.  we can’t go back so soon.

abbey:  but i want to see them.  if we can’t go tomorrow then maybe the day after tomorrow or the day after that?

me: sorry, sweetie, i don’t think so.  it’s a very long flight, remember?

abbey:  then maybe in 100 days?  could we go in 100 days?

me:  maybe.  we’ll see.  maybe in 100 days. 

abbey:  1…2…3…4…5…6…

  1. Can you set up a video-chat over the internet so she can talk to them (and SEE them)? Maybe that would help. It must be horrible to have your friends just disappear and not understand why.
