(Conversation I had with Ethan when he was  7 years old. I know he looks older in the picture so just use your imagination. It was a few years ago.)

Daddy, why do you cry sometimes?

 

 

rudy

It depends. I cry sometimes like anyone else.

 

 

ethan
Yeah. Like that time once before when you were telling mom about how mad you were at your family and stuff.

You understood all that?

 

 

ethan
Yeah. I understand everything.

Hey, you know,  sometimes parents are bad because their parents were bad to them, and their parents were bad to them.

 

 

rudy_sad
Yeah, well I don’t want to make those same mistakes with you so that you end up hating me. So there’e a reason behind it.

 

 

ethan_sad
I wouldn’t hate you.
