Nah, not this handsome fella. He's just my husband
I'm talking about this little man:
That's Eduardo. Or Lalo. My husband's nephew. Best little five year old ever.
And one day I'll tell you more about him. Maybe next week when I'm on vacation. But for now I just wanna tell you this.
I adore him.
Really, really adore him.
And this morning he came over cause he didn't have school and I didn't have to work til late. We played with an alphabet set I bought him. We spelled his name and talked about uppercase and lowercase. He's still not totally convinced that e and E are the same thing. But we'll get there.
Then I got ready for work. He stuck around to hang out with his uncle. Lucky guy.
I put on my shoes. I grabbed my bag. I gave the little guy a kiss.
Then came the good part. The really good part.
He walked in front of me to the door. Opened it. Held it open for me. And watched me leave. As I got to the gate, he called out:
te quiero mucho, tia. I love you so much, aunt.
And I went off (happily) to work.
