What do I say to that?

Kid 5 was pushing a truck around the kitchen earlier. He was trying to stand and ended up using the truck as a means to walk along. (It’s a big truck.) he told me “I think my feet are broke.”

He knows. He is so, so smart for a two year old but not old enough to have it all explained. All he knows is that he is different. He wants to have fully functioning legs like the rest of us.

How do you explain a hole in a brain to a two-year-old? How do you tell them that with ridiculous amounts of work, they will walk?

I think, in this moment, that his cognitive levels are a curse. He has to deal with this and can’t even be blissfully ignorant.

I knew he would want answers someday. I just didn’t know it would be now.
