To Believe or Not To Believe a 6-Year-Old

Years ago, when S was six, she desperately wanted to help her older brother. He had hurt himself and S. was insisting on nursing his injuries. Her 11-year-old brother obviously had little faith in her medical skills and wouldn’t let S near him.

So S wrote her big brother a persuasive note.

"Why do you never believe me. I believe you so why do you not believe me. And I love you. From S."

Bless little S, her persuasion techniques, and the effort she took to spell “from.”

Don’t stop believing.

Except that song is now stuck in my head.
