The only way I could think to console her was to tell her that her balloon was flying off in the direction of the ocean where Daddy is, and that maybe her balloon would fly all the way over to the other side of the world where Daddy can stand on the very top of his boat and reach up and catch it! ...and bring it right back home to her when he comes. Well that made her smile instantly. And she has not stopped talking about it since.
I told Mike the story soon after. To my surprise, a woman showed up on our doorstep yesterday with a bright and sunny arrangement of flowers and a big balloon tied to it that reads, "I Love You!" It was from Mike. AK was beside herself with joy... and then she asked me if Daddy was still going to bring home her BLUE balloon?
