Insight

As I mentioned before, Sprout is really excited about his new name and loves to sign it on everything.  So when he was signing the beautiful valentine he had made for mom, his first instinct was to say, “Oooh! I can sign my new name!”

uh oh…how exactly do I handle this delicately?

I started with “Well…” and paused to think of the right way to word it.

But there was no need.  He read the expression on my face and came up with the perfect words himself.

“Maybe I shouldn’t write my new name.  It would remind mama of the Judge’s decision and that would make her feel sad.”

wow. exactly. 5 years old with the wisdom and insight of so many more.
