Don't Cry Mommy

I’m turning into my mother – and I don’t mind at all! I remember many a time when my mom would just start crying when she would read us books. We’d always be a bit confused and ask her why she was crying. She would just shake her head, smile and read on… Well now it is my turn. A little while back I was reading The Velveteen Rabbit. It hit me how fleeting childhood is... About two thirds of the way thru the book when the rabbit was discarded after seeing the boy thru Scarlet Fever on his journey of growing up, I started crying. Xander reached up and wiped the tear away and told me “no crying mommy.” I just gave him an all to familiar look, smiled and read on.
