The next morning, when I sent the kids to get dressed, Calvin pointed at his brown and white dress-shirt and asked John, "what's this?"
John was like, "What do you mean, what's this? This is your shirt."
Calvin replied, "Oh, I can't wear this shirt. It doesn't match my yellow shoes."
These are Calvin's yellow shoes:
Nevermind the blue stripes. These shoes are yellow.
And Calvin insists on wearing them every single day.
It's a tough job finding something yellow to wear every day, to match his shoes.
Calvin says "I like the color yellow, because I like daytime."
Yes, this boy is my sunshine.
In some ways Calvin is so different from the rest of the family. I often marvel "who is this little creature running through my house?"
But then I remember, as a child, I was actually a lot like Calvin.
I looked up to my older sister Jessica.
Calvin looks up to his older brother Finn.
I copied whatever Jessica did.
Calvin copies whatever Finn does.
I remember that as a kid, when my sister named her brown bear "Freckles", I had to name my white bear "Freckled Ham". Original, I know.
But I think it's sweet that my boys have same type of relationship that I had with my older sister.(O'course I'm crazy about my younger sister, Lindsay, too:)
Even though Calvin closely follows Finn's footsteps, he certainly has a flare and style all of his own!
