Let me tell you 'bout my beeeeest friend...

My bestest friend in the whole wide world is 2 1/2 years old. Yes, Baby Ben, also known by Russian Phil as "Baby Stewie" for his head size, is truly my best friend. We spend two mornings a week together and have done so for 2 years. He is adorable beyond words, and though he has yet to actually say it, he loves me unconditionally. He gives me hugs and he grins at me and he takes me by the hand and sits in my lap to get read to, and he's starting to speak in sentences. Today, Sam came in and picked up Ben's guitar (he has a little acoustic one that he plays Shabbat songs on) and strummed it. Ben turned around and said, "No no no no no no, Sam." in a sing-songy voice. SO Sam tried a different tactic. He asked Ben's permission to play it. Ben answered, "No, just me." And then he was trying to get my attention today and said, "MOMMY! Um...I mean, Aimée !!" and it was really funny. He looked embarrassed.

But, today, his mom told me some bad news: in the fall, he has to start going to school five days a week. So I most DEFINITELY have to be out of the J by then. But, this makes me happy, because then he won't get attached to someone new after I'm gone. It makes the pain of leaving him that much easier, haha.

SCHOOL STARTS TOMORROW FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Devon asked if I was going to have Mark take my picture and pack me a lunch in a cool new lunch box. Ha, ha, ha, ha. Silly Devon..I have night classes. No need for a lunch box.

BUUUUT.....with the start of school comes the time to BUY SCHOOL SUPPLIES!!! I am a dork, I am a dork, I am a dork....
