He always has a smile on his face
Zander smiles probably 80 % of the day. He is always happy. People comment on how he smiles, regardless. He is a sweet natured child that seems to bubble happiness.
Yet on Thursday morning he said something that kind of popped my bubble.
Maybe he is not that happy. Maybe he is just a little bit less than we think.
We woke up early. Just the two of us. Well three, since his shadow (Fiela) was next to him.
He said in a matter of fact voice that he shares all his problems with Fiela. In the mornings before school. At night before bedtime. He talks to her.
I said that he is could talk to me about any worries or problems he has. He declined (and said that he didn’t want to hurt my feelings) but he is already sharing them with Fiela.
It’s just sad that he has worries and problems that I don’t know about.
