Kid at Car Dealership: What's his name?
MG: His name is John Paul, but we call him Jack.
Claire: John Paul is hard for me to say.
MG: We named him John Paul because Mommy and Daddy had a friend named John Paul, but he passed away.
Kid: Your daddy?
MG: No, John Paul.
Claire: Our daddy went away and he's not coming back, but I'm barely sad because he gets to live in a hotel.
Whenever we get back from a trip, Claire gets all mad that we live in a boring house, and not a fun hotel like Eloise.
Apparently when I told Claire that Daddy wasn't coming back tonight, she didn't hear the word 'tonight.'
It's hard, being 4.
