Cat Got Your Tongue?

Andy has been unusually quiet lately. Withdrawn almost.

Yesterday I picked him up from school and he was, well, quiet. I asked him what was wrong, and he said nothing.

But, he wasn't talking about his day, was answering questions with one word answers, just being very quiet.

I said, "Sweetie, you've been really quiet lately. Is anything going on?"

He thought about it for a minute, and replied, "Sometimes I'm quiet because I'm sad. But usually I'm quiet because I just don't have anything to say."

Well said.
