Jackson has been really missing his dad and had a hard time letting him go to work yesterday. He cried and cried and kept asking for his dad to come home. I managed to get him to school and he had a good day. But he sure has been missing his dad since he as been gone so much in rehearsals.
David took the rest of the week off because he is in tech week for his show. So today I asked him to pick Jackson up from school. I didn't tell the boy, just let his dad showing up be a surprise. David picked him up and they went for a milkshake and spent some time together. After dinner tonight, when David was getting ready to head to rehearsal, Jackson said to him, "I'm not going to cry, Daddy, I'm going to let you go." And he did.
