I just called my youngest son in France.
Me: “How are you my sweetie?”
Him: “But what’s going on with you Maman???”
Me: “I’m fine of course, just wanted to hear how you’re feeling…”
Him: “If everything’s okay with you Maman, then everything is okay with me.”
(Jos sulla on kaikki hyvin äiti niin sitten mullakin on.)
He is nine years old.
Every parent – well, every sensible human being – knows what’s so deeply wrong about this conversation.
My baby, grown too big too soon.
