he has been featured in my blog before, in an "ode to dragons and press on tattoos." this is the four year old who holds my heart.
fresh out of my first year of college- almost three years ago- i took on the challenge of nannying three of the neighbor boys. i had been their babysitter since i was fourteen, but this was different. all day, five days a week. those kids stole my heart.
the youngest one was 4 at the time, and i cannot even find words to describe him. sweet, loving, fun, humorous, challenging, snuggly, happy, imaginative.. the list goes on. anyway. hes seven now i think, i havent seen him for a year. but that summer lives on in my memory forever. when those little loves took over my heart.
