"But Mom, why does Dad have to go to Tokyo Japan?"
"He's going for work, Honey."
"But, Mom! Why?"
"He loves us and takes care of us by going to work and this is one of the things he does for his job."
"But, Mom! It's making me so sad that he's going to Tokyo Japan and I miss him so much, so much!"
"I'm sorry, Bob. We can see him on the computer and talk to him while he's gone. The week will go by really fast... Do you want to practice singing one of your songs for the Kindergarten Thanksgiving Pageant?"
"Yeah, but first I'm going to cry a little bit because of the Sad-Tokyo-Japan-Dad thing. Then we can sing."
