Putting the Mama in Mammal

Small Dreams

G's home sick today. He had his heart set on getting a perfect attendance medal at school this year and he's very disappointed.

But he's really sick. so he's stuck home. It's not a bad lesson to learn, to stay home when you're sick. But being goal oriented is good too. And it's hard to have a dream slip away, however small it may seem to the grownups around you.

I feel sorry for his disappointment, but I'm glad he's resting and getting better.
