"I’m not upset. I’m just looking at this tree."
This is what Aidan said earlier this afternoon.
Aidan got the opportunity to go camping with his Grandma and Grampa Wilkins over the weekend. He had so much fun, which is no surprise. After they dropped him off at home, Grandma and Grampa stayed for a little visit and I got to hear all about the fun they had. When it was time for them to go, we all walked out to say our farewells. I could tell that Aidan was sad to see his Grandparents go. I was talking to my mom when I hear Aidan say, “I’m not upset. I’m just looking at this tree.” Awwww… I turn my head to see my poor boy was tearing up, with his face in a tree. He was so sad that his fun weekend was over, and that he had to say good-bye. I’ve never seen him hide his tears before. It was both funny and heart breaking at the same time.
I guess it’s another reminder that he’s growing up. He’s a big boy and he doesn’t want anyone to see him cry.
