feeling a little sad….published: 2008-12-20
My son wasn't feeling too well today, his fever jumped up and down, and so did he. At bedtime, he threw a few tantrums and only after three consecutive ones did I manage to get him into his pyjamas. Ten minutes after I put him to bed, he called for me. I asked what was the matter and this tiny small toddler voice surfaced, "I'm feeling a little sad." He didn't say "sick" (a word he uses too) he specifically said "sad." He's two years old and eight months, and already he knows he has feelings, he even knows how to express them clearly and simply. I think that's wonderful.
