RTT is so awesome, I’m deciding to continue the randomness.
This is for my friend M who likes James’ art – this is my favorite from this week’s selection. M- I miss you. I think I’m going to start posting weekly James art just for you.
The sun was out today, and it felt de.lic.ious. I had to close the blinds in my office so that I could see my monitor which was just wrong.
The baby talk took a bitter-sweet turn tonight.
M: Yes baby.
J: Can I have a baby sister?
M: gently No baby
J: But why?
M: I don’t have the right parts anymore.
M: Remember when I had surgery? The doctor took some of the parts out that I need to have a baby.
J: clearly confused……….Well….um…can’t you just buy new parts at the store?
M: No sweety, I can’t buy new parts.
J: So I’m not going to have a baby sister?
M: No, honey
J: But Mom…..hitching sob….I’m going to be so loooooooonnnnnnnely.
James’ face crumpled and enormous tears rolled down his cheeks.
I gathered him in my arms and held him tight, because he is right. And he’s figuring it out much earlier than I did. I wish he wasn’t so smart.
