I remember when Sammy wanted to be just like David...which was pretty much always.
But especially when it came to David's stuff.
Like the video game controllers....David would hand him one without the batteries so he could "play along."
|September 2007 -- Sam was nearly 3 years old.|
|Yes, Guitar Hero was big in our house in 2007. Sam obviously couldn't do it but he definitely wanted to try!|
Solly insisted on wearing them. "Sammy's light-up shoes," he calls them.
|Oh, right, and did I mention that he also wanted to wear an Ironman costume?|
|I'm pretty sure that was Sammy's hat too.|
I so wish that were true.
And secretly? I think I'm glad that he talks about Sam as though he might just walk in the door at any moment. I definitely find myself wondering where he is, why I'm coming up short in counting, calling out a series of names...David, Sam, Yael, Solly...so when Solly talks about him like that...it's a little stab in my heart, but it also feels right. So I let him....
