Aw, poor little guy! That is a very hard thing for him. 🙁

I think you and socKs did great, of course. You’re fabulous parents. It’s hard, I think, watching our kids lose — bit by bit — the wonderous innocence of childhood and learn more about life.

Even life after glowsticks.

Not to ruin the metaphors and all, just wanted to give you a quick tip for extending the life of a glowstick… At the end of the night, stick it in the freezer, and the following night, it’ll glow again.

I’m sorry Av has lost something so dear to him.

Part of the fun of being a kid sometimes is thinking that things will last forever. Of course, part of being adult is wanting to believe they will even though you know they won’t.

Beautiful post, Shiny….and I feel for your poor little dude, losing his glowsticks like that.

Poor kid. Some things are ephemeral, it’s hard a thing to learn. Alas.

(Still I love glow sticks.)

The facts were these: I just read this entire entry as if it were the opening of an episode of Pushing Daisies.

You are right. Something happened… and it was bigger than a glow stick. Who says childhood is easy? I still remember letting go of a helium balloon on a string when I was very, very young. As it drifted higher and farther, I sobbed. My mother told me it was heading to my grandmother’s house in Charleston… a place I only visited once a year. I stopped crying.

OFF TOPIC, but I saw this new WP theme and was reminded of your Long and Glorious history of blogging.

Death of a glowstick can be a tough thing. Motley’s cat Neko is gaga for glowsticks. When they stop glowing she is despondent and carries it around the house in her mouth all droopy tailed for days.
