Daddy is Dead


I was putting together a doll house for M. I couldn’t figure out how to snap it together. I kept trying. I knew I was the only parent in the house now to get this thing to work. She looked at me not sure that I was going to figure it out. Then she said, “Daddy can do it.” I didn’t say anything and didn’t know what to say. He had been dead for 6 months. She repeated herself, “Daddy can do it.” Frustrated at the project and not knowing what to say I said, “M, daddy is dead. He can’t do it. I will figure it out.” I prayed I would figure it out. It finally came together and the parts started snapping together and the house was done. M said, “Mommy did it. Yay!”
