Cruelty and Kindness
Ayden commented while I was making lunch today, "Mommy, you look like you have a big, fat tummy like there's a baby in there!" Which made me turn away and cry. Most days I could think, "ha, ha; I'll remember that and re-tell it to you when you're old enough to understand!" but today I just couldn't! Then, an hour later I was outside watching Ayden ride his bike when suddenly he hopped off and asked me, "Are you thirsty, mommy? I will go get you a drink of water. Do you want some food, too?" and ran inside to get me some water. When he came out with a flowered mug dripping full, he shouted, "I got you the flowered cup because I love you!!" So then I got weepy because that was so sweet.
