My Sweetie!

I was talking to my middle son on the phone last night (as I posted yesterday, they are visiting with their grandparents right now) and I was asking him about something grandma had told me. She said he was a bit homesick and sat in a room by himself for awhile. I was thinking "oh how sweet, my baby actually misses me, awww." I was wrong but the reason he was crying was still just as sweet. He had been watching "Fox and the Hound", remember that one?

I guess he found it just too sad to watch so he had to leave and cry a bit (hey, I cry watching that one too!) but didn't want grandma to know the real reason so he pretended he was homesick. I guess crying because you are homesick is more acceptable to a 7yr. old then crying from a sad movie! I just love his tender heart! He is my little sweetie!

That's kind of amazing that he already knows there are social expectations about when it is ok to cry and when it isn't. That's got to be one of the challenges with boys... trying to teach them how to deal with their emotions in a world that tells them emotions aren't ok.
