The Little Things

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.
