“I didn’t want to get any cats because I don’t want to be all sad when they die one day.” I said as I was walking my eight year old son Dante to his dentist appointment today.
“A little too late now since we already got cats!” Dante said, “Besides, you need to feel sad sometimes.”
“What?” Why would an eight year old boy say something like that?
“It is just good to experience a variety of emotions.” Dante said as if this was just common knowledge.
“I’ll be sure to remind you of this when the day comes.” I said.
