Yesterday and today Little Brother has been very solicitous about my health. He’ll come over and announce,
“I’m gonna give you a hug and a kiss!” After that, he’d ask, “Did that feel you better?”
This morning he rediscovered his Very First Stuffed Animal: a dragon that has a music box in it, that plays “London Bridge.” I told him how he used to like listening to that music when he was a very little baby. Then he pulled the string to start the music, put the dragon in my lap, hugged me and told me that it would “feel me better.” And, of course, it did.
