Lonely

Leo woke in the night. He cried and wouldn’t settle. Eventually, Claire joined him in his bed, whereupon he turned to her and said, clear as a bell, ‘Mummy, I’m just so lonely.’
He still wouldn’t settle, and i ended up sitting with him explaining that he didn’t need to be lonely because mummy and daddy were always here.
I can’t believe he can be so articulate about how he is feeling. And indeed, to respond the next morning when we talked about it by saying ‘I’m not lonely now, Daddy’.
