I didn't manage to put the kid to bed. He just won't go to sleep without Helga. He doesn't protest that she is not here, he just won't fall asleep without her. Helga had to put him to sleep via Skype. She read to him as usual and then he fell asleep. And in the morning he needs to see me and he won't let go until he does. He doesn't care much if we are there during the day but the check-in times are sacred. And it is morning for me and bedtime for Helga and it cannot be the other way around.
We had a great day though, the kid and his gang built a huge fortress in the middle of our living room and it still there.
