I was in the kitchen cutting up an evil onion which was making me cry. Rowan was walking past and literally backpedaled when he saw my tears.
Rowan: Mama? How you doin’?
Me: Oh, I’m doing okay, I was just cutting up this onion here–
Rowan: Mama? I’m going to give you something.
(Slides his arms around my waist and gives me a hug.)
Rowan: It’s a trophy for when you get done because I know you’re going to do a good job.
Me: Awww, thanks, buddy.
Rowan: (as he runs away to play Minecraft) I’m proud of you!
Me: (Real tears.)
