That Empty Feeling

This post is totally related to that one.

So this evening, after we came back home from a boys' scout style meeting in church after which three of us mothers went to the Korean grocery store together (one mom is Chinese American and the other Indonesian), when I was driving into the garage, Kelvin said:

"Oh, the house feels so empty now!"

In the split second that took him to finish his thought I wondered whether he was going to complain about his friends not being home or, perhaps (less likely) about daddy being gone (the boys barely said goodbye because they were playing Wii with their friends), but what he said was:

"Because whe Wii Sports Resort is no longer here..."

Oh, the things they say! At least he's pretty honest about what he really values. And, BTW, tonight we ordered the object of this desire, using his birthday money from grandma and auntie.

I know that he will miss daddy greatly, though.
