"Mommy. Mommy. Show done."
"Do you want to watch another one?"
He looked at me with these big beautiful brown eyes. He looked so sad for me. "Donworrymommy."
"There, there are no turdles--there are no turtles after you. You be okay."
I stare at him with blank eyes.
"You be okay. Don't worry Mommy."
Where does this kid come from? Turtles? I put on my most concerned face, "Val, are you sure?"
"Yes Mommy. I look out for you."
I reach out and hug him. "Good. Thank you. I feel so safe."
"Okay Mommy. Okay."
