Often, I have been amazed by our Drew’s tender heart. He has an amazing ability to sympathize, share, and protect. Case in point, he saw daddy carrying off a naughty child to his room. In the process, the flailing child bumped himself and was crying. Drew started to sob. I asked him why he was crying (thinking I knew why but wanting to confirm). When he was finally calm enough to respond, he said, “Because …. is crying.”
Drew is a child that you will find closest to the babies and girls. He has a tender heart that wants to protect the little ones. It was adorable to watch Drew keeping an eye on my nephew when I watched my nephew last.
Drew also is often quick to say, “Will or Luke, you can have this toy.” He’ll then give up his favorite and get another one for himself. I am amazed by this and often wonder, “What makes some children so ‘naturally’ more selfless?”
