Tsunami Mommy - Part II

I can't believe it... he didn't win.

What to do? I decided it was best for him to accept that sometimes the best of intentions are all that matter... but his disappointment is hard for me, as a mom, to take. He hung his little head and said, "I didn't win. I never win anything." I hugged him. He wants to believe that the world is just and good and that good things happen when you put your heart out there... he found out that it's not always so.

It's a good lesson to learn - but Tsunami Mommy wanted him to be win... and Robin wanted his view of the world to linger just a little while longer... for both of us.
