This morning, as I was dropping Declan at school, I ran into a good friend in the parking lot. I was holding Dex in my arms and she was telling me about something bad going on in her personal life. Normally, Declan would have interupted us about every other minute… but he just sat in my arms, head on my shoulder and toyed with my necklace for the 15 minutes that we talked. He wasn’t sick or tired… it was like he just knew she needed the emotional right-of-way at that moment.
I told you.
