The Little Things
Dec 11 2010
Aden, age 8: Can I have a snack, Mom?
Me: Yes. You can have a banana.
Aden, banana in hand: Hey! Look, Mom! I listened!
And then, making a belittling brush-away motion with her hand against her chest, Aden followed up: I always listen to the little things coming out of your mouth.
My gratitude knows no bounds.
