Today is a B-I-G day for the OHANA = Family Connection, with Nicholas at dead center (or maybe it's Dennis?). Today he and Dennis (Amy's beau) met each other for the first time. (Remember, Dennis is from California and flew in this weekend for Amy's birthday today.)

But first, this precious story: Amy had just framed some pics of her and Dennis from their recent Hawaii week and had placed them in the living room this past Monday evening. The above photo is one of them. In the rush of getting to school and work, Nicholas did not notice them the next morning. But that evening while Amy was in the kitchen and he was running around in the living room, she heard him suddenly stop dead in his tracks.

Nicholas then announced, "I see a picture of Dennis kissing Mommy!"

To which she said, "Yeah?"

Nicholas: "Yes, and I know why...because you love him."

Amy: "Yes, you're right, Buddy. I do love him."

Then he started chanting, "Mommy has a boyfriend! Mommy has a boyfriend!" and proceeded to then sing the entire song of "Mommy and Dennis sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G...."

After Amy told me this story she said, "I think it's safe to say he's well aware of what's going on! He gets it!"

So now Dennis and Nicholas both have a face to go with the name and are starting to get acquainted. Oh my. This is one of the best dreams of my life come true! And what a birthday gift for Amy!



  1. HAPPY, HAPPY DAY TO CELEBRATE so many things, Amy!!
