I wonder when if he is happy and what he is doing when he is not with me. I wonder if he is safe. I think for a lot of dedicated parents, it comes as a natural instinct. I do not want Angel to suffer. I had as a child and my family still has episodes where the past comes haunting at odd times.
I think I am lucky with Angel. I have seen some kids his age (he is 7) and they are just in a nasty disposition. Angel is zany, and literally happy. I think sometimes he might be spoiled when he is with his father, but with me, I try to get him to appreciate the simple things.
