He disappeared this morning and wouldn't answer when I called for him. First clue that he was into BIG trouble. I went searching and found him in Emma's room. Wearing a necklace and at least 4 rings. He had a purse on his arm, lipgloss in his hand and markers with the felt pieces pulled out all around him. After his solitary free-for-all was interrupted and he saw my face, I didn't have to say a word. He just answered the question. Cuz. Short for Because.
