Pete’s been out for a couple of days for an assignment in San Francisco. Naturally, the kids miss him. They are constantly looking for him to come around the corner, or be the one ringing the doorbell, or giving them their bath at night.
Yesterday morning, Nik asked where Daddy was.
Me: He’s at work, baby.
Nik: Daddy’s gone to work.
Me: That’s right, he’s at work. He’s making money for you and me.
Nik: Daddy’s at work. He’s making honey with the bees.
I guess that works…Pete would probably like that analogy of him as a worker bee.
