She thinks he's Robin Hood.

Last week as we were getting ready for G.I. Joe to come home from yet another bit of "awayness" I waited until the day before he was coming home before I told Lucy. Partly because return dates from it school, deployment, tdy, whatever...always change. So the day before I started telling her "Daddy's coming home soon!"

Wednesday morning she woke up super excited.

Bouncing off the walls excited.

She would jump and shout "ROBIN HOOD IS COMING HOME!!!"

No matter what I said or did everything in reference to Daddy was "Robin Hood."

If I said, "Baby we need to get ready for Daddy to come home."

She quickly corrected me saying "No, we need to get ready for ROBIN HOOD to come home."

Deep sighs.

If that's the way she wants to deal with separations,
I'm fine with that.

Robin Hood is honorable and courageous.
He fights the bad guys and always wins.
He makes girls swoon.
He takes care of those less fortunate.
And he makes Maid Marian feel like she's the only person in the world.

Who doesn't want that?
