I was watching a movie with my 2 year old, and one of the characters in the movie was a little boy, who started crying. He looked at me and said “aw, crying…sad.” He then held out his arms, pretended to hug the little boy, and started making shushing noises. I got all teary thinking how sweet he was. Which totally makes up for him getting into my purse and destroying my favorite lipstick-for today anyway…

  1. I love it when my kiddies show their compassion. My son is the best about it; whenever someone looks down, he loves to run over and find a way to cheer them up.

  2. I love moments like that, when you see your child as a little human being that starts getting stuff…like feeling empathy for people who are sad or sick.
