What they do to my heart....

I don't have time to deal with my camera card, but the following is worth noting from the weekend:

1.  Scotty came into my room, and asked me, "Do you want something to drink?"  I really wasn't thirsty, but I've learned that it's best to just say, "Yes, please!" to him when he's offering food or drink.  He likes to be busy in the kitchen, and getting a cup of milk or apple juice is so pleasing to him that he can't let it go.

I heard him bumping around in the kitchen, then heard a small splash as something spilled on the floor.  A minute later, he showed up with a glass of red wine, in a goblet and all!  ha! 

2.  Erik's dad passed away just over two years ago now, and Scotty asks him about "his dad" often.  Scotty and Erik are extremely close.  When he senses that Erik is feeling sad, he tells him, "I know you're missing your daddy.  I'll be your daddy, okay?  And you can be my daddy.  Then we both have a daddy."  
Honestly, sometimes?  It's just too much.


  1. That's so sweet. Sad and sweet.
