I Skyped online with my boys the other night, while I'm here in B.C. visiting family. When Benjamin heard my voice, he ran over to the computer and gazed at my image. "Nurse! Nurse!" he cried at me, confused at my face and yet no body. He sat for a few moments while I talked with them, but before long he laid his head down on his hands and stared at me with the saddest eyes, sulking. In another minute he hopped down and toddled off, upset that the sight of mom did not mean a nurse, a cuddle and a song.
