i should be a little hispanic kid's mom

yesterday ...
my favorite kid: hey, what happened to your voice?
me: i have laryngitis
mfk: you're sick?
me: yeah
mfk: are you going to go to the doctor?
me: probably not. i'll just rest.
mfk: when my mom gets sick, i take care of her. i make her tea and make sure she has blankets to keep her warm. and if she has a fever ... i'll put a cold paper towel on her forehead.
me: that's nice. you're a good kid.
mfk: if you were my mom, i would take such good care of you when you're sick.
me: (trying not to look teary eyed) that's so sweet. thank you.
