Dan and I had dinner last night at the home of friends. We hadn’t seen their kids in a while and I was a little nervous seeing them because their youngest is Alexander’s age. She just turned 2.
When we finally arrived and I saw her, my first was that she’s certainly getting tall and the second thought was she looks like Alexander. Alexander and this little girl have been mistaken for brother and sister before. I didn’t see the resemblance but now that she’s experience a growth spurt and is taller, slimmer and her hair free flowing the way I let Alexander’s grow (her hair was neater), I can really see it.
This little girl has always been a shy around me but last night, she seemed to warm up to me. She kept bringing me toys to play with her and I read her a couple of books before she went to bed. Perhaps, she sensed how much I was missing Alexander and was trying to cheer me up.
All in all, it was a good night spent with good friends.
