My Real Life

Monkey Girl is spending the night at her cousin’s house.

It’s natural.

She’s 9.

9 year olds sleep over at each other’s homes.

Especially at their cousin’s homes.

She’s safe.

She’s happy.

I miss her like crazy.

As of this moment, she has been gone for 6.5 hours.

I won’t see her for another 21 hours, as she is spending the day with them tomorrow as well.

I feel like I’m missing an appendage.

It’s silly.

If she were here, she’d be playing with her brothers right now, anyway.

She, most likely, wouldn’t be right next to me.

But I feel an empty space near me and I miss my little BFF.

I could never let her know quite how much I miss her when she’s not here.

Yes, I’ll say, “Aw, I missed you sweetie!”

But, any more than that and my little Monkey Girl who worries about everyone would never leave my side again.

And THAT is not what I want for her.

Do you think they make mother/daughter suites at college?
