After I read my almost-kindergartner’s bedtime stories tonight, I sent a quick message to a friend on twitter. Widget looked up from his pillow, and I explained, “A friend of mine’s mom is sick like I was, and I’m sending her a note to help her feel better.” He took his thumb out of his mouth and sleepily replied, “Maybe you should send her another note and explain cancer to her.”
Oh, baby. I wish I could.
And with that, I put my iPhone down and snuggled him as he fell asleep.
