Last night The Wife handed me an envelope with Daughter #2's Xmas wishlist in it. Aside from the reasonably predictable "as seen on TV" items, there were a few "reaching" ones, including this (which I'm paraphrasing from memory, not having the list in front of me):
"I want to see my Nana again, even if she's a ghost."
Needless to say, that one choked me up quite a bit. As often as I think "I miss my Mom", it's hard when you have to figure out how to deal with a 5-year-old's missing her every bit as much.
