My SPECIAL Son
Eloi: “Nanay, did something happen to you when Isay was in your tummy?”
Me: “Why do you ask that?” (See, even a 5 year old is asking me the same thing that some people have inappropriately asked or what some cannot bring themselves to ask)
Eloi: “Did something happen to Isay and that’s why she’s small?”
Eloi: “Her feet are always going to be tiny huh?
Me: “They will grow, but they will not be as big as the feet of other children the same age as she is.”
Eloi: I think its cute that Isay has tiny feet.”
Eloi: “I like her feet just this size.”
Me: “I like it that Isay is smaller than everyone else because I get to hold and carry her longer.”
Eloi: Not like me, because I’m already too heavy for you. When I’m bigger will she still be smaller?”
Me: I think so.
Me: Sure you can and that would be nice.
Eloi: I think I would like that.
Me: You know what I really like right now?
Eloi: What Nanay?”
Me: And your sister too.
