Two weeks ago, Dominic, my brother's best friend from middle school and high school, came to Dallas to help out. I haven't seen him in 4 years and I didn't realize how much I missed the kid!! It was SO much fun having him around! The kids fell in love with him at first sight! The first thing Colin said to him was, "Can I touch your hair. You look like a Teddy Bear." After that, he kept forgetting his name. "What's your name Teddy Bear guy?" It was great. We took Dom to Costco, Target, Joann Fabrics, to dinner at The Texas Roadhouse where it was "his birthday" and he got to ride a saddle.
We also had my Dad's brother visit from Wisconsin. The last time I saw Uncle David was in 1993!! It was really great seeing him again. We have a lot in common and it's been really wonderful getting to know him again. Keely really enjoyed his company. They played restaurant together. She talked and talked and talked to him. It's also great seeing my Dad developing a relationship with his big brother again after SO SO SO many years!
Both Dom and David said their goodbye's yesterday. Colin took it VERY hard. He wouldn't let go of my Mum or my hand all night. He kept crying and telling us, "Don't leave me like Donimic (notice the name) and David!" As if the kid wasn't confused enough over where he lives, this made it worse. My poor little guy!!
