Last week the kids and I went for a walk on the Greenway, a popular sidewalk here that winds through the woods. Seth was borrowing a scooter from a friend and racing ahead, then pausing to wait for the rest of us, watching people go by as he sat on the side of the sidewalk.
Once when I caught up with him, he announced to me excitedly, "Mommy, I am getting in love with people!"
"Really? How are you doing that?" I asked.
"When people go past me, I smile at them," he answered, "and they smile back at me. Then we get love together! So I am getting in love with people!"
