A Heartfelt Age

| Related | January 27, 2015

(I am with my five-year-old cousin in my family room, while my aunt, mother, and father are watching TV. I pick up my cousin and swing him around, holding him by his chest. Afterwards, we sit down.)

Cousin: *makes a pained face* “Ow! Ouch! My heart is hurting!”

Mother: “Do you know where your heart is?”

Cousin: *points to his heart*

Mother & Father: “What happened?”

Cousin: *looks at me with an adorable, accusing look* “You broke my heart!”

(No one had ever expected him to come up with such a cute thing by himself, and we roared with laughter for at least 10 minutes straight.)
