Tonight was an emotional night. Everything was going fine, other than running on 2 hours of sleep from the night before. I gave Landon his bath and got him ready for bed. So far, so good! After putting Landon to bed, I went downstairs to hear Tyler bawling. She was at the computer and was listening to I am Already There by Lonestar. This song has really become a security blanket for Tyler. I sat down and had a little cry with her. She told me that an illustrator came to her school today. The illustrator was a boy and he drew pictures of mommies and daddies that were at the desert. She raised her hand and was dying to be the one student that was picked. She was heartbroken when he did not pick her. Later in the day she went to the library to see if they had the book to check out. She was informed that the book was not available yet. My heart broke for her. We decided that we would give you a a call. No luck, the base operator could never get through. I told Tyler that your phone must be broken. She was still upset, but decided she would feel better by sleeping in one of your t-shirts. Then she decided that she couldn't sleep in her room and asked if she could sleep with me. Now David, you know that is almost unheard of from Tyler. She loves to sleep in HER bed! She is better now, but would love to get a call from her Daddy.
I hope you enjoyed your huge package of goodies!!
All my love,
Your Loving Wife
