Lillian had been crying during the past week because Aaron’s starting preschool this week. She only had to think about him going to that big strange preschool to make the tears well up.
We told this story to one of our friends, who helpfully consoled Lillian with the fact that Aaron’s going to adjust just fine, and that he’ll have his big sister in a nearby classroom. He’ll need a little adjusting, but he’ll be fine.
I had to explain to our friend that Lillian’s not crying for Aaron.
Ah, mothers and their babies. The youngest is always their baby.
