Scott and I were sitting on the couch watching TV. He was on one side, I was on the other. Not that we were angry at each other. It’s just how things worked out. Aden sat down between us. He looked at Scott. He looked at me. He looked at Scott again, then he looked at me. I smiled at him and he grabbed my hand and sat it in his lap. He grabbed Scott’s hand as well and sat it in his lap. He sat there holding our hands for a moment, then started putting together our hands like a puzzle until we were holding hands. He looked up at both of us with such a huge grin. He was so proud of himself. I love him.
