She winces at the image. "I -- don't regret living. Having my children now was worth it. Seeing them even  only once a month was worth it. But I do- admire that. I'm glad it hasn't happened to you."

"Yeah. I'm really glad you're out now." She takes the other woman's hand and squeezes it. "And I'm certainly very glad that your children exist, all things considered."

Squeeze.

A-Zhan wanders over to Brother and hugs him.

Permalink

Hug!

"Did you like the tops?"

Permalink

Nodnod. A-Zhan pulls out his new bunny top and holds it up to show Brother.

"Oh! That's so pretty! Did Wei Ying give it to you?" 

Permalink

Nodnod!

Permalink

"That was generous of you, Wei Ying." 

Permalink

"He really really liked it! I only liked it. And I have lots of tops." 

Permalink

"Oh, that is a pretty top! Do you like the colors?"

Permalink

He hugs the top close again, humming softly. "Bunnies."

Permalink

"Aw, you like bunnies? Bunnies are cute." 

Permalink

Serious nod. "Cute."

Permalink

"Did you have fun playing with the tops, A-Yao?"

Permalink

"Yes, Mama! We took turns with the tops, and then Wei-xiong and I played Fighting Cultivators, and then Wei-xiong told Lan-er-gongzi about tickling and Lan-er-gongzi told Wei-xiong about rules."

"Huan-ge, your uncle has too many rules." 

Permalink

"...I think Uncle's problem is not that the number of rules is too great, but that he thinks having so many rules mean that the rules cover every situation, and they don't. Sometimes there is a situation where the rules put you in a bad place and you have to break them to get out, and Uncle would say you shouldn't even then."

"Your uncle has rules that say you have to sleep really early and not have pets and those rules are bad." 

Permalink

"Well, I don't think everyone should follow them. But if Uncle wants to, it doesn't hurt him." 

Permalink

Hm. This is a New Thought. 

"Why would anyone decide to have rules if someone else wasn't making them?" 

Permalink

"Rules provide structure, and some people find that structure makes things easier."

This is a Dubious Baby.

Cangse is SO PROUD OF HER BABY. 

She beckons the other mothers a little closer, and says quietly, "What does the toy situation currently look like? I know from experience that it can be hard to take much when you have to suddenly pack up and leave a place. Kids should have toys."

"A-Yao had time to pack his favorites, my lady. He has two little dolls and some pinwheels and a little wooden sword. -- A-Zhan is welcome to share those if he likes, of course. A-Yao is good with sharing if he is asked nicely."
