"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2016."

Stella: We're about to move, and you basically seem unphased. It probably helps that we've pulled you out of school, and are filling your days with playdates, parties and outings. And maybe our little sojourn in the presidential suite also sweetened the situation somewhat. Still, I'm amazed at how positive you are about this upcoming change.

Hugo: You're having a much harder time. You understand profoundly what is going to happen, and you're pretty sad about leaving the only home that you've ever known. You're breaking down and weeping at just about anything, crying, "I DON'T WANT TO." I know that this has a deeper meaning, so I'm allowing you more space. There are more cuddles, more time, and more opportunities to sit on my lap. I'm here to help you work through this.
