I’ve been sad recently. Like, a lot. But there have been a few wonderful moments and beauty and happiness in there.
The other day I was sitting on the floor looking particularly dejected and Darwin came over to ask me what was going on. Here’s how the conversation went:
D: Mama, why are you sad?
M: My heart is just a little bit broken.
D: I can fix it, Mama! I have the piece!
Of course the poor boy was utterly confused when it had the opposite reaction from what he expected and I burst into tears.
Damn do I love that little boy.
