MOMENTS OF PROFOUND INSIGHT BY MY SON (BIRTH THROUGH 7 YEARS)

  1. "Leave me alone, I'm trying to poop! I can't poop with people bothering me!" -- last week
  2. "Wahhhhhhh!" -- a few moments after emerging from his mother's womb
  3. "Fuggindarnit." -- age 5, after dropping his sandwich on the floor.
  4. "I want to see Grandpa in heaven, but I don't want to die." -- age 6, evening after the funeral.
