Why children are awesome, even (or especially) on bad days

Snuggling with Andrew, I said: "Today has been a rough day, hasn't it?"

Andrew, giving me a huge hug:  "I accept your apology."

He wasn't being flippant.  He'd "heard" the apology, even though I didn't say it.

A very-bright spot to my crabby day was that (A) he instinctively knew I was sorry... (B) understood it was my problem and not his...and (C) was still willing to accept my (unspoken) apology.
