The Easter Bunny delivered a bag of balloons. Huge hit.
Sometimes his whole little boy body seems to deflate, too. Lately, sometimes actually feels like a lot. It may just be that he's three. But it may be more complicated than that. Our family dynamic changed three times in the same number of months. He has been such a resilient little guy, gently welcoming new baby Tollie and cheerfully pointing out things that look like Celie's hair and calmly remembering that Colby chewed the hole in his beez. Often, though, he's not gentle or cheerful or calm. And sometimes, when he isn't yelling or crying, his contemplative face, silent and just as sad, reminds me of a popped balloon.
Fortunately those aren't the times we think to grab the camera.
