Talking to Joey about Daddy leaving in 23 sleeps. I asked if he's going to miss Daddy and he said "No, because he's gonna come back." Maybe he doesn't need me to make a social story book like I do every Spring. Maybe he's got this now.
His literal mind plays a part in this, because he knows Daddy is coming back so why be sad? He's very matter-of-fact. I'm glad he is able to verbalize this. We are planning on visiting Daddy this year. I think this will help him (and Ben) a lot.
