The more tired Nate gets, the more tenderhearted he becomes.
Tonight I was tucking Jack in on the downstairs bunk and Nate said "Remember when we lost Bumper at Peepa's house?" This was one of just a few Bumpers we had, but it was Bumper #1, and we believe he fell into Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.
"I feel happy for Bumper" he said. "I imagine he's exploring the ocean."
I said "That's beautiful, Natey."
And then he burst into tears.
