My good friend from Michigan, who's in town with her family for a couple of weeks, said this to her son the other day when we went kayaking. The river is quite cold in the Northwest, even in the hot summer, so when her son jumped in the water and jumped right back out, holding himself, she queried if all was well. What struck me as most charming was her sincerity. She truly wanted to understand the other side. What a momma.
