Breaking Skin

From Daddy: During dinner, I noticed a scrape on his elbow. I didn’t think much of it until later he mentioned that he broke his skin. I asked him how it happened and if he fell. He said that while he was running a lap at recess before school that a fourth-grader ran into him. One of the before school program’s teachers “made him feel better.” He also reported that he did not cry.

I told him that I was proud of him for being so brave that he didn’t cry. I assured him that it would be okay for him to cry if he needed to, but I was still proud of his bravery.

This Evening

I told him during dinner that Grandma and Granddad were very proud of him for bicycling to school yesterday. He did not react.
