How does he know?

The Boy never ceases to amaze me. I woke up sick this morning, but went to work anyway - I'm trying to be a more normal teacher and take few sick days. So, by the end of the day, I was destroyed. Just exhausted and more useless than normal.



So, what happens when I get home? The Boy takes me by the hand, brings me upstairs, and puts me to bed. The two of us have been napping for almost two hours now. I really believe that he knew I needed the rest and helped me!

Granted, I told him the following a little bit into our naptime: "You know, The Boy, you help Daddy feel better when he's sick by snuggling, just like Daddy snuggles you when you feel yucky. Thank you."

Kids know. I'll never forget when my niece was 3, and I came home after breaking up with a girlfriend. She climbed into my lap and wouldn't leave me alone until I started feeling better.

They just know.

Aw, that's so sweet!

If I am sad, Andrew will walk up to me, take my face into his hands, and whisper, "It's okay, Mom. I wuv you." It melts my heart!
