Love starting the morning with him. All his questions and requests, how he arranges his toys then sits quietly on the couch thinking of what next to say. Could be inquiry or declaration. Neither I prefer, just want something, some words from him, another back-and-forth. He asks me if he’s going to school today, I have to tell him yes. He goes quiet again, just wanting the morning to not have an end, to be here with me.
