Mila has a tummy ache. She's at school but she doesn't really want to participate or play with the other kids in class. She doesn't feel like playing with puzzles or blocks. She doesn't even feel like eating snacks. Her teacher knows just what it is: I think you miss your mommy, Mila. Luckily, Mila's friends, Sen and Liza, are there to cheer her up. With their help, Mila finds that she doesn't miss her mommy as much anymore.
