Most mothers might breathe a sigh of relief if they are alleviated from parental duties for a moment.

But Katie Holmes looked positively glum without little sidekick Suri shadowing in her stride.

Instead, the double act had a break from the Manhattan jungle with Katie flying solo as her six-year-old daughter was reunited with father Tom Cruise for an adventure to Disney World.

The Dawson's Creek actress, soon to
star on Broadway as Lorna in Dead Accounts, found it difficult to summon
the winning smile she has in recent weeks as the corners of her mouth
drooped down.

Dressed in jeans and a lemon sweater,
the 33-year-old looked like any other New York resident clutching a
giant caffeine fix in the guise of a Starbucks takeout cup.

She completed the casual look with a
scruffy bed hair bun, fuss-free make-up, a pair of tortoise shell-framed
shades and a grey tank peeping over her waistband.

Meanwhile, Mission Impossible star Tom whisked Suri off to Florida for a day at the iconic theme park.

Despite her very grown-up antics and
reported $3million wardrobe, the couple's only biological child was seen
acting her age while dressed in an Ariel costume from Disney's The
Little Mermaid.

The pair were joined by Tom's sister, Cass Mapother, according to People magazine.

While an eyewitness claimed Suri
'looked like she was in heaven… It was really cute… (She was) having
the time of her life and Tom, who looked really handsome, was really
engaging with her.'

But while expression of Katie's face
may reflect feelings of missing her absent daughter, the mother-of-one
is taking single life by the reigns and has several exciting projects on
the horizon.

Not only will Holmes take to the
stage, she is also set to star opposite Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford in
Responsible Adults, and has just filmed a guest judge spot for Heidi
Klum's Project Runway.
