|Translation: "I feel sad and angry"|
When I asked her what she was angry about she said "I'm angry and sad because I miss my mom and because I miss my big brother." That last bit surprised me because she sees Big Brother every day and I said as much. She went on to explain that yes, she sees him every day when he helps her with her homework or picks her up from school, but he hasn't taken the girls to the park or to visit the cats at the cat hotel in a long time and that is what she misses. Big Brother was then consulted. He explained he has been working a lot of overtime, but he will make a point to take his sisters somewhere fun this weekend.
Sometimes the Big Feelings have big consequences and the solutions can be big and complicated, too. It was kind of nice, for once, to have the answer be something as simple and as sweet as a little girl just needing a little more quality time with her big brother.
