He said, “Mother Bear, stop fooling. You are my Mother Bear and I am your Little Bear, and we are on Earth, and you know it. Now may I eat my lunch?” (from Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik)
I guess there comes a time to stop pretending (as much fun as it is), and just be authentic. To “stop fooling” long enough to give your children something to be sure of. Mmmmm.
