Jack, silly-rambling-talking boy, says to me on the phone "Grandma and Grandpa took us to the zoo. Are we allowed to go to the zoo these days?" These days. Yes, son, you are allowed to go to the zoo these days. "I don't like any girl friends, I just like boy friends." I'll enjoy that while it lasts, I guess.
Nate, Daddy-loving-kiss-eschewing boy, when I tell him goodnight, that I love him, says in a world-weary way "I love you too." When G&G took them to a movie and there was a kiss, Nate broke the silence of the theater with a loud "Ohhhh!" of horror which made the movie-goers laugh. I'll enjoy that while it lasts, too.
Perfect imperfect boys. Perfect imperfect life.
