After we’d been home from the airport for several hours, Udo began to realize the grim truth: Mom Isn’t Coming Right Back. He went into full mourning and hid in the bedroom.
While he’s in mourning, he watches out the bedroom window for Mom to return. He might eat a little after a day or so. This time, he was in full despondency for 36 hours. When I came home from work, he walked right over to me, shoved his head in my gut, and made me hold and snuggle him for an hour.
Good thing he’s already dressed in black.
He’s also going to lose his freaking mind in a couple of weeks when he sees her at the airport.
