"Mom? Is your heart broken because you miss Pearl?"

"Yeah, a little. Where did you learn about broken hearts?"

"In Star Wars: Episode Three, Padme's heart gets broken by Anakin. Heart breaking means you're sad."

"It does."

"Yours will un-break later, right?"

  2. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Bob is squeezable though...either way. Hugs to you.
