Daddy was forced to make a choice, and he hates it. The powers that be do not have the collective spine to say no to petulant children. They give in whenever pressed for a decision. They also say that it is what it is. Tonight, however, Daddy lied to your sister. Daddy promised to be home to read books. He was not home. He was not home to tell stories, and he missed hugs and kisses because others could not say enough is enough. Daddy missed out in a way that hurts in ways that most do not understand, but in the end, Daddy still missed out. He apologizes to Ava, and you. Work interfered and intruded on our time, and for that, Daddy is sorry.
I love you!
