Mikan-chan finally recovered from “mom sick”. When Mei-Shun returned home after 4 weeks, she shouted in joy (and warning?) from morning till night, getting a husky voice. She implored mom to stay sitting on the sofa holding her. Her intention to sleep on mom’s blanket was so assiduous that we let her spend three nights in our bedroom. Now, learning that mom would always come back to her, she has returned to peaceful nap alone.
