My little daughter of three years and ten months is having a nightmare. I don't know what to do. She won't take any comfort. She screams and yells, tells me to go away. Maybe she only wants her mother. She says she wants Momma, but my wife is nursing her little brother. I offer to take her to her mother, but she says, "No, go away! I don't want you! Go outside! Go exercise!"

Well, I don't know whether to laugh or to cry. Maybe my long absences abroad in the Balkans and in Southwestern Asia have affected her thus. I wish that I had been here for her.
