"Can I live with you guys?" This is what my 5-year-old son asked me while he was pretending to be the guy who was building my house. "My people don't love me anymore."
Yikes. No matter the age or the game, it stings a bit to hear your kid say such a thing. It makes me wonder where a statement like that comes from. He had been out of control earlier in the morning and I had sent him to his room. Was he still dealing with that on some level?
"Sure you can live with us," I answered. "Who are your people?"
Here's thinking all is well.
