I like that description. Raccoon is very verbal and has an amazing memory. Shine your light, little one, to lead the way for others, but take care that you do not blind them.
One of our recent conversations
In the park, I say, "There's a little girl and her sister."
"I no have a sister."
"Would you like a sister?"
"Would you like a brother?"
"No. I no like babies. (pause) Mama have a baby?"
"Have more *Raccoon*." And he gave me a hug.
