Once my antibiotics kicked in and I was declared not contagious, I got to play with the nugget. One of my favorite moments was when I went outside at Grandma's house for a little quiet time away from the family and who showed up but Dean. The kid had figured out how to open the front door and let himself outside to play.
So play we did.
Somewhere there's a picture of me as a kid, watering those same plants with Grandma's watering can. I love transposing memories like that...
P.S. I totally bought him those slippers. Coolest.Auntie.Ever.
