Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

In which The (then) Five-Year-Old absolutely is not crying

One afternoon, Daddyo and The (then) Five-Year-Old were talking about emotions. Somehow, Daddyo found himself caught up into a not-exactly age-appropriate conversation about extreme depression.

Daddyo, backpedaling hastily: “One day you might be really sad like that too, but who can you always talk to, no matter what?”

The (then) Five-Year-Old: “You and Mommyo.”

The (then) Five-Year-Old begins to cry.

Daddyo, distressed: “You don’t have to cry.”

The (then) Five-Year-Old: “I’m not. You are filling up my eyes with tears of happiness and one of them is streaming down my cheek even now.”
