Ok, so I finished the neighbors kids toy knit-loom owls (I'll post pics later.)
& so I knocked, (heard the kid) & I knocked again (heard the kid but not the father, strange?) waited a couple minutes than open the door & looked around & said "(kids name) where's your dad?" kid: "idk?" (me in head: "oh jeez.") me: "ok well, here's the early Christmas gifts. The toy owls." (& I gave the kid her toy owl.) me: "hey! The red/black toy owl is your sister's toy owl! Ok! Ok?! Don't mess with it!", kid: "ok. I won't." me: "be good to your parents & your sister until after the holidays are over. Don't give them crap. Just be good.", kid: "ok. Thanks for the toy." me: "your welcome. & be good!"

...... The kid was alone! Idk where the heck the dad was! (mother works as a HHA & the sister never goes to school but never is home.)
Once I came back up-stairs I gave everyone a hug & DD wanted to know why, I said "I love you! I know we're not normal but I love you & I'm thankful that mommy & daddy are here for you."

Just turned 7 in october.
So strange b/c I saw the dad like 2hours before that. (he had a "terrible 2" moment. He vented loudly at me. How he hates holidays, h hates kids, he hates kids staying home for the holidays, he hates being a parent!) "blah blah blah".
Smfh.
