My 5.5 year old is figuring out death... In the past the wooden pirates would fall off the ship sailing through the playroom on the broken sea and fall to their death only to pop back up and find treasure on a nearby island. Now, he knows... He has realized that life has an ending albeit unknown. Tonight he said to me, "Mommy, I want you to be a kid for real" and I said, really? Why? "Because then you would live as long as I will".... My heart is touched again like no other time and I am again amazed at life, love and being present every minute.
