Overheard / by Susie Lubell

This is the conversation I just heard from the kitchen while my kids are playing in the yard:

Her: (crying)
Him: Did you fall down?
Her: Yes
Him: Did you get an owie?
Her: Yes
Him: You have to be more careful.
Her: I know
Him: Do you need a hug?
Her: Uh-huh.

I take back all of the horrible things I wrote about him. He's a gem. Now they're behind the house reprimanding their dolls and winnie the pooh for misbehaving.
