My Old Soul With a Broken Thumb
Margot's whimpers seemed to be more from fear than pain. She was confused, upset she wouldn't be spending the night with Cyrus and Soraya, terrified that she couldn't bend her thumb no matter how hard she tried, alarmed by our alarm. I think it would have been easier to respond if she had been wailing but she just sat there calmly and told us what she was feeling. And she felt really sad. "It just really hurts. It's a big owie, mama. I don't want anyone to touch it. I feel sad. I feel owie. I just feel really sad." It completely broke my heart into a million pieces.
