(While I was reading a book of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast")
"Mommy, Belle is beautiful. She looks just like you."
A couple nights ago, just before bed, Caleb broke down in tears of exhaustion. As he wept, I enveloped him in my arms, wiped the tears from his face and spoke softly, "Caleb, you're breaking my heart!"
The next day, when something went awry and left Caleb once again in tears, he wandered over to me and, through gulping sobs, asked "Mommy, am I breaking your heart?"
Then I told him I really need a Caleb smile so that my heart could smile. He tipped his head up and grinned the best he could.
