Ryan misses his brother. He asked me yesterday why Andrew had to live at school all of the time. But then he followed it up with the question, "Why can't his teacher just drive him home so we don't have to go there EVERYDAY to get him?" He hugs Andrew and follows him around the rest of the day until bedtime. But while Andrew is at school, Ryan is enjoying being the biggest at home.
The first day Andrew was at school Ryan crawled up in my lap and whispered very urgently in my ear, "Mommy, I don't really like Star Wars. Andrew does. But I like Elmo and trains." It was so cute, he was so hesitant to tell me, but so earnestly wanting me to know that he was NOT Andrew, and had his own likes. We popped in an Elmo movie and pulled out his trains. He has a fun time ever since that first day letting Ryan choose what we do while Molly naps in the morning.
