I can’t wait for the weekend when I get to see my dad. He promised to take me to a baseball game and even better, he promised we could have pizza for breakfast and dinner. Mom would never let us do that! My dad is so cool, he lets us do anything we want. I don’t understand why my mom won’t just let dad come home, like dad always says “she is so stubborn.” Last weekend dad and I talked about how to convince mom that we should be a family again. It seemed like a good idea until I asked mom. She got really sad and started to cry.
