Suze has two school age kids, and she still decided to share this infinite wisdom?
Sam was thrilled at the very thought of this; thrusting himself through a plane of fleshy fruit on a hot afternoon.
He’s been bugging me to try it ever since.
Today, I said yes.
His brother slammed the same little piece of watermelon against his face until Sam was ready to try.
Needless to say it was bath and hair night tonight.
Marcel and Sam say yes all day. Yes to jumping in the pool with a new coach for swimming lessons, and to playing at the playground with a new friend. Yes to trying a new taste at dinner, and to really listening to his brother when he says OWWW and getting off of him immediately. Yes to reestablishing relationship with the grandmother you might not remember from last time when you were only just two. Yes to holding her hand, and taking her for a walk around the block. Yes to mommy’s request for you to be gentle with her, because she still isn’t all better from her summer flu. Yes to holding your brother’s hand to cross the street, even though you’d rather hold one end of the baseball bat, and he could hold the other. Yes to sleeping in your own bed tonight, and believing that it’ll be alright.
