Read This When No One Loves You
Abby Norman

I returned last night from a party for newly three-year-old Soren. Neither Soren nor older brother Liam can yet pronounce their “r’s,” so I am Juan, and I — as an old guy suedo-grampa — can remain in the background and simply observe. And he is a delight. Very opinionated and thanks to knowledgeable non-intervention by his very bright mom and dad, has a well-developed ego. He’s not afraid to say no if that’s what he’s feeling. And the wonderment in his eyes about all things around him where the adults talk to him as if he were already adult-wise is so incredibly incredible. Thank you, Ms. Abby, for reminding me to remark on those moments, and many more to come.
