What happens when a child who feels so much has a limited vocabulary? When he’s angry, or upset, there are tears. There is hitting and foot stomping, when he feels that you have wronged him terribly. And because he’s big for his age, it hurts when it happens.
But oh, the magic is there.
It’s there when he kisses the bruise on my knee, saying “owee”. The hugs that say “I’m happy you’re here”. And he gives out many of those. The dancing that shouts “Today is a good day and this is my moment!”
There are words, and there are the unspoken feelings.
And somewhere in there, this mommy is finding her magic.
