Buttercup, where are you?
Busy going to school 8+ hours a day.
And on that Monday when you don't have school, you work 10+ hours and have Family Home Evening with your Singles Branch right afterward.
And on that Thursday when you don't work, you still go to school 8 hours and want to hang out with friends in the evening.
Of course, there's that one special day a week -- Sunday -- when you don't have either work or school. But you don't go to church with us. You have your own ward to attend and it starts at a later time than our's, so you're sleeping when we leave and heading out the door when we get home.
Darling Daughter, please don't forget about us!! We're here waiting for you!
If you had been with us, do you think that we (I) would have had to battle Inigo's Bey Blades in his new Battle Stadium? (It's a game that only Inigo and other 6 - 10 year old boys finds fun.)
Of course, playing our new UNO game would have been a lot more fun with a fourth player.
You would have laughed hysterically when Inigo said, "I'm so happy to stay up on New Year's Eve so I can be awake when the earth finishes its rotation around the sun."
I know you would have thought, as Dad and I did, "What kid says that? Most kids (and adults) are just happy to see one year end and another begin." Only your brother would come with something like "the earth's rotation!"
And, after the ball dropped at the stroke of midnight, we really missed you when we had our family group hug/kiss-on-the-cheek. Our little circle was too small without you.
