Lucian is constantly doing or saying things that make me laugh. When he was 4 years old we were driving to his grandparent’s home and he kept craning his neck to look out of the back window. I told him several times to look out of the sides so as to not hurt his neck, but he refused. After several times of admonishing him, I told him to ‘look out of the side windows goofy, you’ll see the same thing”. He looked at me indignantly and replied, “I’m not goofy, I’m Mickey Mouse!”
This is not a funny story but one that is still very sweet. Recently on a trip to Wal-Mart we passed a heavy set woman riding an electric cart. She looked so sad. Lucian pulled his hand out of mine, turned around, walked back to her and threw his arms around her, gave her a big hug, kissed her cheek, told her she was beautiful (and past gorgeous) and that he loved her. Her face lit up as she hugged him back and you could see that it made her feel so much happier.
