“I’ll be going away for the weekend,” I told the boys. “Zach, Ms. S will take you too and from camp on Friday. Ben, Ms. L will bring you to camp on Friday morning, but then you’re going to Joe’s house for a playdate after camp.” Zachary nodded. Benjamin looked confused. “Do you understand, babe? Joe’s mom will pick you up from camp and bring you home for a playdate.”
“Where are you going?”
“I’m going to a conference for the weekend,” I explained again.
Ben turned to me, sweet and troubled look on his face. “But I love you.”
