This was such a lovely article, Trista! I felt myself smiling more and more as I read it. What a special relationship you and your son have.

My son turns 5 soon, and he is the joy of my world.

He’s also silly, before bed he remarked, “Mom, I’m glad you’re not a dinosaur.” Hmm, that certainly gave me food for thought!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful writing and heart.
