Missing Mommy

By: AJ's Dad

So AJ's Mom has run off and left her boys alone for the last two days. She has gone down to Cancun on business. Yeah, "business". I'm sure there is a lot of "business" being conducted down there. Whatever.

Anyway. So all has been going well. One thing that I was forced to promise before Mommy left was that I would not feed her son Taco Bell everynight. Fine. We might get a pizza one night.

The first night we had a Guy's Night Out and went to dinner at the new Hooter's in Katy. AJ had a lovely, young lady flirting with him all night. He seemed to enjoy that. However, at the end of our meal the waitress comes by the table and asks if we would like to have some chocolate cake. Note to lovely, young Hooter's waitress: Don't ever mention C-A-K-E in front of the toddlers. Ok, so the night ended on a bad note as I had to drag a kicking and screaming child out of the restaurant because he didn't get any cake. Day one complete: No Taco Bell

Last night, AJ and I stayed home. I made sausage links and macaroni and cheese. AJ got to eat dinner while watching Toy Story. All in all a pretty good night. Day two complete: No Taco Bell.

It was pretty obvious all day yesterday that AJ was kind of missing his Mommy. Yesterday morning he was kind of moping around when he realized Mommy wasn't there. His teacher told me that he was very cuddly with her and told her that he wanted his Mommy. And about three times last night he told me he wanted his Mommy.

I told AJ that Mommy would be home soon and that when he missed her he should say a little prayer for her. So I taught him a little prayer:

"Dear Jesus, please bring my Mommy home safe to me and let her know that I miss her and love her". He was quite happy about this.

I let AJ sleep in the bed with me last night. After we said our good-night prayers and lay there AJ turned to me and said, "Mommy went to go see Jesus?"

"Oh, no, no, no, son. Mommy just went to Mexico" I replied as I shuddered.

"Oh. What's the Mexico doing?"

Sigh! Come home soon, Mommy!!!
