Still struggling to understand

Before it happened, I assumed Amaia would cope best of my kids because I thought she was too young to notice his absence for long. But I was wrong. Nearly three months have passed. Today we decided to visit Granny with a view to cutting her hedge for her. 'Get on your shoes Amaia', I said, 'We're going to Granny's'. She came up close and whispered in my ear, slightly ill at ease, and with a look of concern 'Is my Pumpa still away?' Poor baby, it is heart-breaking...
