This post struck a chord in my heart. Being away from my kid, I know and understand her efforts in understanding our situation. It is never easy for young kids…and this is such a sweet gesture.
So, I echo and I quote this post: “While even young children may be able to understand their parents’ absences, that does not stop them from feeling sad or disappointed especially when it feels like every other child has their supportive parents right by their sides.”
I remember one particular conversation I had with my BunnyMunchkin about this sadness and separation and summed it up by telling her that “sometimes our minds understand but our hearts don’t.”
