The Lonely Snowman
This little snow man is the last of our Christmas decorations. I left him up because I thought he was cute and wintry. He used to be part of a whole shelf display of snowmen, but now he is hanging out with the family pictures. This is very troubling to Isaac. "Mama, the little snowman is really lonely, he really needs his family. He needs his Mommy and Daddy and his brothers and his Baby Amelia." I assured him that the snowman's family still loved him even when he was far away. He was not lonely. Isaac was unimpressed by this explanation. "Well, they are really lonely for him." It goes both ways in a family, even a family of snowmen.
