“Don’t cry! I’ll be your best friend today.”
Jonathan was talking with Missy in the car today, mentioning some kid in grey that would always cry. Missy told him that he should do something to make him feel better and be his friend.
So Jonathan went to preschool today and, true to form, the child in question cried when his parent left.
Jonathan went right up to the boy, gave him a big hug and said “Don’t cry, I’ll be your best friend today!” And according to the teachers, he was.
There are times when you hear parents talk about how proud they are of their children. Graduations, sporting events, and such. Today Jonathan is asleep in my chair, and I am immensely proud of my son today.
