Years ago, Scott gave me this sweet figurine for Mother’s Day. I love it. A mom and two kids: Perfect for me.
Just the other day, I found my older son staring at it. “Mom,” he said after a moment, “is this you and me and Luke?”
“Sure is,” I said.
He pointed to the mom and each of the two kids in turn, saying, “This is you, and the big one is me, and the little one is Luke.”
“Yup,” I said.
“But where’s Daddy?”
“Daddy’s not in it.”
He looked around the room and picked up a toy, placing it next to the trio of loving family members. “This is Daddy,” he said happily.
Well, come to think of it, Daddy DOES have a son named Luke ….
